Mohn Doss, Medical Physicist in Diagnostic Imaging. The ALARA concept, As Low As Reasonably Achievable is base on the linear no-threshold (LNT) model assumption and / or low--dose radiation cancer concerns. Do mutations increase linearly with radiation dose? When radiation dose increases, at low doses, mutations decrease. Cancers do not increase linearly with mutations. There are many more reasons to conclude: Mutation model of cancer is not valid. See for example slide 6 / 13.
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.
Mohan Doss, Medical Physicist, XLNT Foundation: Extreme irrational fear of things that are relatively harmless or even beneficial in small quantities is a serious problem, as it would make people flee the imaginary threat potentially making them run into real danger. Too many people have Radiophobia, fear of small doses of radiation. The Linear No Threshold (LNT) Hypothesis encourages this phobia in U.S. regulations. The XLNT Foundation is dedicated to getting rid of (Xing out) the LNT hypothesis in order to enhance public health. Eliminating the LNT hypothesis will help rejuvenate nuclear power industry (which has been throttled by radiophobia) thereby improving the quality of life globally. It will also have a tremendous positive impact on human health by enabling major progress in the war on cancer, as described in the Flyer below. Please share the Flyer with your friends and colleagues.
Mark Miller, Bobby Scott, Bert Morales, Mohan Doss - In 2013, in response to the harm caused by the misinformation propagated regarding radiation effects in Fukushima, following the initiative of Dr. Bobby Scott of Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, a group of about 20 scientists formed a new group known as Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information (SARI). Mission: To help prevent unnecessary, radiation-phobia-related deaths, morbidity, and injuries associated with distrust of radio-medical diagnostics/therapies and from nuclear/radiological emergencies through countering phobia-promoting misinformation spread by alarmists via the media.
