Strictly observed realistic safety standards are more helpful for the public health than excessive restrictions that would be disregarded. Today’s radiation safety standards are based on the linear no-threshold theory (LNT): extrapolation of dose-response relationships down to low doses, where such relationships are unproven and can be inverse due to hormesis. Hormesis is theoretically founded for environmental factors causing adaptation to a background level or some average from the past when… Expand

Genocide Prevention and Western National Security: the Limitations of Making R2P All About Us
The case for turning R2P and genocide prevention from principle to practice usually rests on the invocation of moral norms and duties to others. Calls have been made by some analysts to abandon thisExpand

Hormesis and radiation safety norms
  • S. Jargin

  • 2012
It is concluded that radiation safety norms are exceedingly restrictive and should be revised to become more realistic and workable and elevation of the limits must be accompanied by measures guaranteeing their strict observance. Expand
Dose and dose-rate effectiveness of radiation: first objectivity then conclusions -
The LNT and under-estimation of DDREF tend to exaggerate radiationrelated health risks at low dose and dose rates exposures, and future risk estimates should be based on direct comparisons of experimental data from acute and protracted exposures. Expand

These studies of atomic bomb survivors show increased health in Japanese survivors of atomic bombs, and each study exhibits a threshold that repudiates the LNT dogma. Expand
The Relevance of Occupational Epidemiology to Radiation Protection Standards
Evidence from worker studies suggests that excess radiation-related cancer deaths occur at doses below the current occupational limits; low-dose effects have also been seen in studies of childhood cancers in relation to fetal irradiation and should be considered in revising current radiation protection standards.

Database of Radiogenic Cancer in Experimental Animals Exposed to Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation
A comprehensive database of animal carcinogenesis experiments was assembled involving exposure to different types of ionizing gradation, and the shape of the dose-response relationship for radiation carcinogenesis at low doses in experimental animals is assessed. Expand
Cancer risks attributable to low doses of ionizing radiation: Assessing what we really know

  • 2003
The difficulties involved in quantifying the risks of low-dose radiation are reviewed, a linear extrapolation of cancer risks from intermediate to very low doses currently appears to be the most appropriate methodology, and a linearity assumption is not necessarily the most conservative approach. Expand
It is recommended that the ICRP consider revising its position on ionizing radiation safety standards in light of the fact that the increased risk of cancer observed in the atomic bomb survivor studies was primarily the result of acute high dose rate promotion of ongoing biological processes that lead to cancer rather than cancer induction.

[The threshold for radiation stochastic effects: arguments "pro" and "contra". Applied realization].
The analysis of the data available in the literature and the author's findings concerning the issue of a shape of the dose stochastic effect curve in the range of low levels of radiation concludes that the threshold conception is more reliable than the non-threshold one. Expand
