This is a book in the "Understanding the Atom Series".from the Division of Technical Information, U. S. Atomic Energy Commission. The authors explore general cell theory, radioisotopes as "biologic detectives," the basics of DNA and RNA in cell structure, protein synthesis and the role of radioisotopes in research. - Summary by Larry Wilson (1 hr 29 min)



(5 stars)

There is some information that has been either disproved, or actually only proved since the writing of this. If you like this, I also recommend Worldwide Effects of Nuclear War: Some Perspectives.
