To date there is no single shared property of the various physical and chemical agents that elicit the beta-curve to account for its form, leading to the proposition that hormesis is a consequence of the nonspecificity of adaptive responses. It is argued that adaptive responses to toxic agents may be expected to follow the beta-curve. Four kinds of examples… (More)
