Mohn Doss, Medical Physicist in Diagnostic Imaging. Research on Health Effects of Low Dose Radiation Specialties - Considerable amount of data 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.
