thank you to our reader who wrote the following:
THIS IS IMPORTANT – ACTION NEEDED:
Are you aware that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering a rule change that would adopt HORMESIS as the radiation-exposure-model instead of the present “Linear No-Threshold” radiation model?
HORMESIS is the idea that low-level radiation is “good for you.”
The NRC is also considering other recommendations that would allow citizens to be exposed to as much radiation as a nuclear worker; and to allow children and pregnant woman to be exposed to that amount of radiation, too. (it is well known that children and fetuses/embryos are very sensitive to radiation)
The NRC is requesting COMMENTS from the public on this until September 8th.
Can you please raise public awareness about this?
This really needs a strong vocal response against it and LOTS OF COMMENTS.
Here is the link to submit comments, and it also explains it further —>
And here is a link for those who want to submit their comment ANONYMOUSLY —>
There is also a good interview by LibbeHaLevy of Nuclear Hotseat who says:
“Diane D’Arrigo of Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) on the current Petition in front of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to change radiation evaluation standards from current linear no-threshold to the false science of hormesis (no – whore-YOU-sis) which tries to fool people into believing that “radiation is GOOD for you!”
Comments are needed before September 8 on the NRC website. HERE’S HOW YOU DO IT:
•Go to: Rulemaking.Comments@nrc.gov
•In the subject line, make certain to include the ID number:
•OR – Go directly to: http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NRC-2015-0057-0010
•CLICK on the “Comment Now” button.
Then give the NRC a piece of your mind. You don’t have to make it fancy; they count number of responses more than the content. MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD NOW!”
I hope you will choose to not remain silent on this vital matter, and encourage everyone you know to say NO MORE RADIATION EXPOSURE!
ANYONE CAN COMMENT.
