Dr Ian Fairlie re the US NRC Consultation: LNT vs Hormesis

US NRC Consultation: LNT vs hormesis

On June 26 2015, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) stated it was seeking public comments by September 8, on petitions stating that the Linear No Threshold theory of radiation’s effects was not a valid basis for setting radiation standards and that the hormesis model should be used instead.

Several US readers have written asking for help in drawing up their own comments. As this is an important issue, I attach my thoughts on the matter. US NRC Consultation pdf
