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.
Jerry Cuttler - Social concerns about the safety of all nuclear technologies is caused by ideological linkage of any (human-made) radiation exposure to an excess risk of health effects, namely cancer and genetic harm, using the LNT model to calculate excess health risks. This link, created in the 1950s to stop the development and production of nuclear weapons, is maintained in spite of the extensive biological evidence of beneficial effects from low dose or low dose rate exposures. .. .. .. The remedy is to discard this politicized science.
Jerry Cuttler - In light of the on-going crisis of suffering and economic hardship in Japan, the appropriate action for the radiation protection establishment is to abandon the concept of stochastic cancer risk, based on the LNT dose-response model, and adopt the previous tolerance dose concept. It is supported by extensive biological evidence and credible models.
