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.

SARI - The nuclear reactor accident at Fukushima Daiichi that followed the earthquake and tsunami in 2011 prompted well-intended measures that have had disastrous consequences. These were not caused by the radiation itself but by the social stress, the forced evacuation, and the ongoing displacement of tens of thousands of people.
Wade Allison - Much is known of the biological impact of radiation on life. Like sunshine, low levels of radiation can be beneficial and only very high levels in acute exposures can cause death or cancer. Only the extremely conservative advice from ICRP continues to support ALARA as a basis for nuclear safety. This influence, however discredited, still entrenches the bureaucratic structure of radiation protection today. Current “safety” standards are unfounded in science.
