Bruno Comby, nuclear engineer, Founder-President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - International, in French, Association des Ecologistes Pour le Nucléaire, http://ecolo.org: This is a report of Bruno Comby's visit to Ramsar, Iran in 2006 to document one of the world's highest levels of naturally occurring radiation and the lives of people and animals living there. Results are that high doses of radiation spread out over time, i.e. relatively low radiation dose rate, show no detrimental signs. The people are living above average life times. This concept needs to be incorporated into design and operation of nuclear power plants and nuclear medicine. The Linear No-Threshold model is not appropriate for low dose and low dose rates.

Bruno Comby, Président de l'Association des écologistes pour le nucléaire (AEPN): Ramsar est une petite ville à proximité de la mer Caspienne, dans le Nord de l'Iran. Ramsar est donc, comme nous le voyons, un haut-lieu de l'écologie internationale et de la protection environnementale, avant même qu'il soit question de sa radioactivité ! Mais elle est célèbre (ou devrait l'être) aussi parce qu'on y trouve les plus forts taux de radioactivité naturelle qui aient jamais été mesurés. Quel meilleur endroit pour informer les populations sur la radioactivité naturelle que le lieu le plus radioactif connu sur notre planète ?

Charles Sanders, Ph.D. radiobiologist: Dr. Sanders’ book deals primarily with health issues: leukemia as well as cancer of the breast, lung, liver, and central nervous system; birth defects; the immune system; inflammatory diseases; and longevity (one of several studies that he cites shows an increased average lifespan of 10.4 years among Americans). But he also touches on other matters of immense importance, such as the cost to society of dealing with perverse regulations — a cost that could amount to trillions of dollars — and the politicization of science. The LNT camp has been trying to discredit hormesis by stifling debate, rather than by conducting peer-reviewed counter studies.
