Neural Tube Defects (NTD) and Exposures to Chernobyl Low Doses of Radiation. This formal presentation to an international audience (2019 International Neural Tube Defects Conference, Joseph B. Martin Center at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA) represents 20-year efforts by a large team of investigators dedicated to clarify a CONUNDRUM – International experts and authorities such as IAEA and on its behalf the WHO assert on theoretical grounds that radiation released from Chernobyl or Fukushima disasters is too low to cause detectable human developmental anomalies. On the other hand, the presented observations appear to contradict the theoretical official argument. Either the agencies are in error or the elevated neural tube defects are not due to radiation.
