Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Nuclear power has never been at the very top of the agenda of national politics in Britain. No national election campaign has mainly been fought over nuclear power. Public protest about nuclear power has only had relatively muted expressions. Protest marches have been relatively small. Overall, the influence of the conflict on British politics has been arguably negligible, particularly if one compares it with other countries of the impact of the British peace movement.
