  •  As Walter Mondale said (0+ / 0-)

    "Where's the beef?"

    In fact, there is a growing amount of evidence that LNT simply doesn't work at low doses; Hansen cited a couple of these in his paper. And epidemiological evidence that LNT does work at low doses is simply non-existent.

    I'm all in favor of scientific debate, but the debate should be based on evidence. LNT was a fine conservative assumption back in the day when we didn't have low dose data. Now that we do,  LNT doesn't hold up at doses below 100 mSv.

    We are all in the same boat on a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty. -- G.K. Chesterton
