T.D. Luckey: Most of the world press assumes that all radiation is harmful. If the Japanese government acts on this presumption in responding to the nuclear reactor damage from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami at Fukushima, Japan's already reeling economy will be crushed by tremendous unwarranted expense. Japan should learn from Chernobyl what Mikhail Gorbachev understood too late: "The nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl 20 years ago... was perhaps the real cause of the collapse of the Soviet Union five years later."

T.D. Luckery: Evidence of health benefits and longer average life-span following low-dose irradiation should replace fear, “all radiation is harmful,” and “the perception of harm” as the basis for action in the 21st century. Hormesis is the excitation, or stimulation, by small doses of any agent in any system. Large doses inhibit. “Low dose” is defined as any dose between ambient levels of radiation and the threshold that marks the boundary between biopositive and bionegative effects. That threshold negates the “linear no threshold” (LNT) paradigm.

Many nuclear medicine historians claim that the genesis of nuclear medicine in the United States took place when John Lawrence took leave of absence from his faculty position at Yale Medical School in 1936 to visit his brother Ernest Orlando Lawrence at his new laboratory in Berkeley, California.
