We review new information on Nuclear Warfare and Nuclear Energy before, during and immediately after the 7th International Congress on Energy, held in Manchester, England, 2017.

Our primary goal is to encourage all countries in this world to prohibit, Nuclear Warfare i.e. ‘Atoms for War’ as it might bring the human race and animals living on the planet Earth close to extinction. Our secondary goal is to highlight ‘Atoms for Peace’, to make it possible to provide renewable energy to the whole world, as this cannot be achieved on a global scale by all other renewable energies combined: wind, solar, and water.

As long-term staff members of the now defunct Radiobiological Institute of TNO in Rijswijk, the Netherlands, directed by the late Dick van Bekkum, we participated in Radiobiological studies of Total Body Irradiation (TBI), such as experienced by human being during Nuclear Warfare. We identify several new beneficial applications of Atoms for Peace in animal studies and human patients. (1)

Atoms for Peace studies in human patients should be allowed to proceed and not be stifled by the fear that all nuclear energy studies will eventually lead to more nuclear warfare.
