Alan Waltar, nuclear engineer, Past President of the American Nuclear Society: This review contains a brief summary of the ANS/HPS Joint Conference on Low Level Radiation, including both an overview of the conference as well as key conclusions deemed to be helpful in planning the path forward. We plan on continuing activity so that the information and momentum gained from this conference can be captured to productively impact the radiation community. This initiative can be elevated to a more encompassing international level, with dedicated leadership coming from globally recognized institutions such as the OECD/NEA.

Emeritus Physics Professor Wade Allison, Oxford University, UK has studied radiation released from the Fukushima accident and its effects on humans. He recommends increasing the safety levels from 1 mSv per year to 1000 mSv per year or 100 mSv for a single dose. This would make nuclear less costly and eveyone could benefit from this power and environmental cleanliness.
