Why we created iGLOW for women.
Increasing Genetic Liability Options Women
- The state of being responsible for something.
- A person or thing whose presence or behavior is likely to cause embarrassment or put one at a disadvantage.
In many cultures, including multiple experiences of a cofounder raised in the U.S., the possibility of producing IR genetically inferior or modified offspring often will often limit your options and impact your life choices.
Genetic damage in offspring due to ionizing radiation exposure is well known, but not well documented for our generation to access. Regardless of your source exposure, understanding the inherited ghosts in your genes and the long-term physical impacts to ourselves and our families is critical. Projects we support aim towards those goals. The medical impacts are important to track for this and future generations.
The global need for independent resources to be made available for responsible self-care. Managing various health complications without access to to your own critical health information is a challenge most know nothing about. It’s part of the journey for those exposed, and gets murkier for the descending generations.
There exists a need for medical information and resources become less burdensome on the patient. Many of the activists globally have been impacted personally or watched a parent or grandparents suffer the consequences. Our children, for those able to bear children, and many more, up to even generations downline of Genetically Modified Offspring (GMO) are experiencing the health and medical consequences now.
Critical information is required for these casualties to pursue proper medical care. Due to the levels of secrecy individual countries may have imposed, information has historically either restricted or classified by various divisions or departments of various governments, slowing down the process of helping those impacted and their future generations.
7 years ago science discovered a tool to help. Awareness and access however has been lacking for those desperately seeking information and resources. The Double Strand DNA test has opened a window of opportunity to improve outcomes for this growing population.

The Disproportionate Negative Impact of Radiation and Radiation Regulation on Women and Girls
The mission of the Gender and Radiation Impact Project (GRIP) is to:
- Promote a better understanding of how harm from ionizing radiation is related to gender and age at the time of exposure,
- Encourage research that clarifies these relationships, and
- Advocate for safety standards and regulations solidly based on this research.
By comparison, Reference Man was defined in 1974 by the International Committee on Radiological Protection (ICRP), task force on Reference Man in ICRP No. 23, page 4.
“Reference man is defined as being between 20-30 years of age, weighing 70 kg, is 170 cm in height, and lives in a climate with an average temperature of from 10o to 20oC. He is a Caucasian and is a Western European or North American in habitat and custom.”
Note: 70 kilograms ≈ 154 pounds, 170 centimeters ≈ 5 feet 7 inches
Clearly, it’s time across all nuclear industries that women’s risk assessment need to be addressed. Specifically for reference and considerations in setting workplace regulations and in a manner the information is readily available in a practically applicable way. This is not new research, the data exists now! Getting it into a presentable format and effective distribution is so close.
Gender is captured and factored in The Tooth Fairy Project. The results from the first human tests using these same teeth critically changed the world’s approach to nuclear testing. The global atomic testing superpowers signed a treaty to move the testing underground, as it’s atmospheric fallout were clearly traced in these baby teeth.
One clear example of locations where Nuclear Weapons were tested during Cold War above ground testing.
While this is only one source of iR that can impact the human body, the pervasiveness of atomic testing from 1945 to 1962 Frontline communities, Atomic Veterans, civilians, and fallout “downwinders” create just part of the global concern for better understanding of the genetic damage and mutations through the known trans-generational impacts.
