MARIE CURIE PRIZE
The “Marie Curie Prize”, created on the initiative of the World Council of Nuclear Workers – WONUC and of the Low Radiation International Network –
LOWRAD, is intended as a reward for scientific research and work whose goal is the improvement of scientific knowledge concerning the effects of low and very low doses
of ionising radiation on human beings and biotopes.
Since the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the vast majority of scientific work undertaken on the subject of ionising radiation has been aimed solely at proving
its noxiousness. Regardless of scientific truth, the vast majority of this work has thus been grounded in mistaken dogma; dogma nevertheless which had the advantage
of satisfying the advocates of the “ecologically politically correct” for whom any dose received is noxious, as effects do not fade over time.
This obduracy has consequently precluded all work seeking to highlight the possible beneficial effects of ionising radiation and to analyse the possible adaption and repair
mechanisms that it might produce, depriving the scientific community of fundamental knowledge necessary for pursuing the fight against the different forms of cancer.
By making the acquisition of this knowledge impossible, these obscurantist pressure groups may be considered responsible for the low success met with hitherto
in the fight against cancer.
This absurd representation has fostered the outbreak of massive campaigns denigrating the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, which is now recognised as
the sole genuine solution to the double challenge of the increasing global demand for energy and the protection of our environment.
Under the iron rule of this revisionist anti-nuclear perspective, it is no longer the most probable theories, supported by carefully conducted experiments,
which serve as a basis for scientific research, but rather political dogma. Science has been drafted into the service of the state, of more precisely, its ideology.
Alas! too numerous are the scientists, Lyssenko’s spiritual offspring, whose work receives considerable financing to do research conditioned by thinking,
pandering to the idea of a ravaged ecology, that is bent on transforming statistical correlations into causal explanations, in apparent obeisance
to the famous principle coined by Ivan Vladimirovitch Mitchourine (1855-1935):
“Science should be entirely organised solely upon the basis of doctrine.”
Marie Curie Prize is awarded at successive International Lowrad Conferences for outstanding achievements in research on the effects of low and very low doses
of ionizing radiation on human health and biotopes. The award is open to the whole world and is done by an International Committee. One would hear emphasized
the fact that the prize should be of a character as purely international and impersonal as possible. It should not be attached to them in any way the name of any country, institution or person.
The Marie Curie Prize is awarded for a body of work, rather than for a particular result, in some extent to redress perceived imbalances in the weight given to different kinds
of merit and the movements of intellectual fashion across these topics as a whole.
