Theodore (Ted) Rockwell, Member, National Academy of Engineering: We have the ability to measure very small amounts of radiation - we can actually detect single atoms as they disintegrate. So when we hear the clatter of a radiation detector, we feel that we are in danger. But the numbers we encounter from various human-made sources are quite trivial compared with the natural bath of radiation that the galaxies pour down on us as cosmic rays, and the earth and all its lovely vegetation produce, and even our water, food, and our bodies themselves are naturally radioactive.

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

Robert Hargraves, Physicist. Nuclear power is a green environmental solution. The fuel is cheap and inexhaustible. Green nuclear power can solve the global crises of air pollution deaths and climate change. Cheap energy can help developing nations escape poverty and let industrialized nations improve economic growth. Is nuclear power safe? Yes, the primary obstacle to nuclear power is misunderstanding of radiation health effects.

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.
