Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLEINPICTURES -

A SCI­EN­TIST pro­vided an in­sight into ra­di­a­tion when he gave a talk to a group gath­ered for break­fast.

John McCombe, who worked for Amer­sham In­ter­na­tional and its pub­lic sec­tor pre­de­ces­sor, ad­dressed the Men’s Break­fast at the United Re­formed Church, in Ayles­bury End, Bea­cons­field, De­cem­ber 13.

Mr McCombe gave a talk ti­tled Liv­ing with Ra­di­a­tion.

He ex­plained how ra­di­a­tion is a nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring phe­nom­e­non to which we are con­tin­u­ally ex­posed, no­tably from sun­light but also from a va­ri­ety of other sources, in­clud­ing gran­ite rocks, ba­nanas and our own bod­ies.

John Hoare, who at­tended the talk said: “He spoke about a much mis­un­der­stood sub­ject.”
