Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information, SARI, S.A.R.I.: LNT-based radiophobia fuels needless evacuations, results in extraordinary environmental cleanup costs, inspires avoidance of life-saving medical procedures, produces pressure to lower the diagnostic quality of radiation-related medical imaging, and promotes nuclear fear. Studies supporting LNT are not benign; they do not err on the safe side; and they have deadly consequences.
S Kojima - Tokyo U. of Science, M Tsukimoto - Tokyo U. of Science, N Shimura - Ohu U., H Koga - Lead & Co, A Murata - Lead & Co, T Takara - Takara Clinic: There is considerable evidence from experimental studies in animals, as well as from clinical reports, that low-dose radiation hormesis is effective for the treatment of cancer and ulcerative colitis. In this study, we present 3 case reports that support the clinical efficacy of low-dose radiation hormesis in patients with cancer and inflammation diseases
Edward Calabrese, Professor of Toxicology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst: This paper provides a detailed rebuttal to the letters of Beyea with offered a series of alternative interpretations to those offered in my article in Environmental Research concerning the role of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences Biological Effects of Atomic Radiation (BEAR) I Committee Genetics Panel in the adoption of the linear dose response model for cancer risk assessment.
Edward Calabrese, Professor of Toxicology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst: This lays bare the enormous deception about radiation-induced mutations and cancer that occurred in 1956 and persists to this very day. To recover from the Fukushima setback and improve acceptance of the nuclear energy option, it is essential for the whole nuclear community to expose LNTgate and debunk the radiation-induced cancer scare. "The LNT hypothesis is a primitive, unscientific idea that cannot be justified by current scientific understanding. As practiced by the modern radiation protection community, the LNT hypothesis is one of the greatest scientific scandals of our time." Gunnar Walinder 2000.
