Several problems and discussions raised between the Atomic Energy Commission and the Food and Drug Administration are presented. The Atomic Energy Act directs the Commission to foster the development of radioactive materials and to distribute such materials for purposes of research and development in certain fields, including medical therapy, industry, and other useful applications as may develop. By statute, the Commission has the duty to provide standards with respect to the use of these materials as necessary to protect health and minimize hazards to life and property.
