The German Society for Radiation Protection (GSS)
The German Society for Radiation Protection was founded in 1990 in order to throw light upon the official belittlement of health risks caused by ionizing radiation – in particular, after the Chernobyl reactor accident in 1986. We are an international society. According to our statute, we endeavour the best possible protection of man and ecology against the detrimental effects of ionizing radiation, by implication that the practical handling of radiation must conform to the state of biological and medical knowledge.
The GSS has commented on numerous problems of radiation protection. We are cooperating with various environmental organizations, citizens‘ and support groups. At present, topics are: problems in nuclear contamination recovery, radiation risks in the low dose sector, occupational radiation risks, radiation protection in medical diagnostics.

In November 2016, renowned epidemiologist Steve Wing died. He was one of the first scientists to ascertain professionally induced cancer in workers of the nuclear industry. Contrary to official statements of denial, he proved numerous fatalities and elevated cancer rates among the population which had been contaminated by the nuclear reactor accident of Three Mile Island in 1979.
