Destruction Before Detonation: The Impact of the Arms Race on Health and Health Care
Sidel, Victor W.

Health workers are urged to help end the arms race and advocate that nations transfer funds from nuclear weapons to human services. Statistics on morbidity and mortality in developing countries, hunger and the lack of medical care and resources, and the need for preventive medicine rather than military buildups are discussed. It is contended that even small conversions of funds spent on arms to spending on health could produce enormous benefits, reducing the numbers of children who die daily from preventable illnesses.
