Leo Gomez, Davie Brenner, Otto Raabe - The United States is projected to spend $350 billion cleaning up radioactive contamination and waste derived from nuclear activities over a period of several decades. The difficulty in obtaining scientific data at the EPA’s current ionizing radiation cleanup standards is that these standards are set at a small fraction above naturally occurring back-ground levels. Conclusion - Establishing an improved scientific basis for setting an ionizing radiation standard has the potential to save more than $200 billion in the cleanup of radiation sites nationwide. It will also save money in nuclear power and improve services in nuclear medicine.

SARI, Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information, says that there is no reason to fear low-dose radiation. They explain that the LNT model is a problem, why it was adopted, why it persists, and how it can be overcome.

The LNT model is probably the most egregious error ever made in the name of science, considering the long period over which it has been used worldwide in spite of there being no valid evidence for it and in spite of the casualties and calamities its use has caused.
