Jerry Cuttler, D.Sc. in nuclear sciences and engineering, recipient of 2011 International Dose-Response Society Award for Outstanding Career Achievement, Myron Pollycove, M.D. professor of laboratory Medicine and Radiology at UCSF and introduced the field of nuclear medicine.: Nuclear reactors could supply much of the future energy needs of the world were it not for a fear of potential releases of radioactivity. Such releases would likely deliver a low dose or dose rate of radiation. The areas of concern are discussed.

Jerry Cuttler, D.Sc. in nuclear sciences and engineering, recipient of 2011 International Dose-Response Society Award for Outstanding Career Achievement: The origin of the LNT model of radiation carcinogenesis is outlined. The nature of cancer and the role of the body's natural defense mechanisms are discussed. A simple biological model of the effect of radiation is shown to be more credible and consistent with the observed beneficial health effects at low doses and adverse effects at high doses."

Charles Sanders, Ph.D. radiobiologist: Dr. Sanders’ book deals primarily with health issues: leukemia as well as cancer of the breast, lung, liver, and central nervous system; birth defects; the immune system; inflammatory diseases; and longevity (one of several studies that he cites shows an increased average lifespan of 10.4 years among Americans). But he also touches on other matters of immense importance, such as the cost to society of dealing with perverse regulations — a cost that could amount to trillions of dollars — and the politicization of science. The LNT camp has been trying to discredit hormesis by stifling debate, rather than by conducting peer-reviewed counter studies.

Rainer Klute, Chairman Nuklearia: Vorsicht, Strahlung! Wie gefaehrlich ist Radioaktivitaet? Strahlung und Kernenergie haben untrennbar miteinander zu tun. Menschen haben Angst vor Strahlung. Also haben Menschen Angst vor Kernenergie. Infomationen gegen die Angst: .. .. .. This is an excellent presentation in German about low dose radiation, the Linear No-Threshold Model, hormesis and nuclear energy. NOTE: Please check the source website for updates to this and other articles: http://nuklearia.de/

Mohn Doss, Medical Physicist in Diagnostic Imaging. Research on Health Effects of Low Dose Radiation Specialties - Considerable amount of daata on low-dose radiation (LDR) health effects is indeed available. But in the scientific community there are still two opposing views: The linear no-threshold (LNT) model and Radiation Hormesis.

Ludwig Feinendegen, M.D., former director of the Department of Nuclear Medicine, University Hospital, Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf, Germany, 2010 Marie Curie Prize - Jerry Cuttler, D.Sc. in nuclear sciences and engineering, recipient of 2011 International Dose-Response Society Award for Outstanding Career Achievement: This is a summary statement about low dose radiation from all the articles by these scientist posted on efn-usa.org. "By far, the dominant risk of cancer is from the oxidation effects of oxygen we breath, not low dose radiation."

Jerry Cuttler, Ph.D. Nuclear Sciences and Engineering, past president of Canadian Nuclear Society. Is it safe to be exposed to low-level radiation? You can go to two different places for answers: 1) If you go to the radiation protection people, whose job it is to protect everyone from any exposure to radiation (human-made), you'll find there’s a higher risk of cancer. 2) But, if you go out into the real world, who do you know that’s ever been harmed by low-level radiation? There’s just no evidence of that. There are beneficial effects of low radiation from medical practitioners ~1900 to ~1960, to eliminate metastases or slow cancer growth, accelerate healing of wounds, stop infections: gas gangrene, carbuncles and boils, sinus, inner ear, pneumonia, and treat arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

Edward Calabrese, Professor of Toxicology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst: This article summarizes substantial recent historical revelations of the history of low dose radiation exposure, which profoundly challenge the standard and widely acceptable history of cancer risk assessment, showing multiple significant scientific errors and incorrect interpretations, mixed with deliberate misrepresentation of the scientific record by leading ideologically motivated radiation geneticists.
