报告题目：Radiophobia in society
Are you afraid of radiation? If yes, why do you afraid? Fear of radiation is often born out of ignorance and hence is like many other similar fears people and society face, but our lack of ability to sense radiation makes it especially spooky. This fear is often stoked by misconceptions peddled by media and art, but it’s most important impetus is coming from the outdated scientific models we still use. Many people believe that nuclear incidents have killed huge number of people, yet, there is a mounting amount of evidence that fear of radiation is actually more dangerous than the radiation itself.
