Current radiation safety standards are excessively restrictive and should be revised to become more realistic and workable and revision of the limits should be based on reliable experiments and accompanied by measures guaranteeing observance.
Epidemiological Research with Special Reference to Nuclear Worker Studies: Commentary
- MedicineJournal of Clinical & Medical Case Reports
The monitoring of human populations exposed to low-dose radiation is important but conclusions should be made with caution considering potential bias and economical motives to strangulate nuclear energy production in accordance with the interests of fossil fuel producers.
Asbestos, Mesothelioma and lung Cancer: An update
The asbestos-related policies should be revaluated on the basis of independent research, and carcinogenicity of chrysotile vs. amphibole asbestos is discussed.
Hormesis and radiation safety norms: Comments for an update
- MedicineHuman & experimental toxicology
Current radiation safety norms are exceedingly restrictive and should be revised on the basis of scientific evidence, and Elevation of the limits must be accompanied by measures guaranteeing their observance.
Asbestos , Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer : A Comment
The asbestosrelated policies should be revaluated on the basis of independent research because of the screening bias probably contributed to the enhanced registered incidence of asbestosrelated diseases in exposed populations.

Nuclear Facilities and Nuclear Weapons as a Guarantee of Peace
- Political Science
The global peace is as old as the nuclear weapons (NW)-71 years. It would be an overstatement to describe the Cold War as a long peace since a number of local wars were fought but not between…
Relationship between caesium (137Cs) load, cardiovascular symptoms, and source of food in 'Chernobyl' children -- preliminary observations after intake of oral apple pectin.
- Environmental Science
Cardiovascular symptoms, ECG alterations, and arterial hypertension were significantly more frequent in children with high 137Cs burden than in children in this area with very low 137Cs load.
On the genetic effects of low-dose radiation -
Arguments in favor of inapplicability of the linear non-threshold theory to the radiation doses, comparable to those from the natural radiation background, are discussed here.
Increased oxidative stress with gene alteration in urinary bladder urothelium after the Chernobyl accident
- Medicine, BiologyInternational journal of cancer
The hypothesis that iNOS, COX‐2 and 8‐OHdG in bladder urothelium are induced by long‐term exposure to low‐dose radiation with a close relationship to p53 over‐expression that could predispose to bladder carcinogenesis is supported.
Hiroshima survivors exposed to very low doses of A-bomb primary radiation showed a high risk for cancers
- MedicineEnvironmental health and preventive medicine
The results show that, if the dose estimations of the dosimetry system 1986 (DS86) are correct, there are significantly increased risks of cancer among even survivors exposed to the very low dose level.
Letter to the Editor: On the Radiation-Leukemia Dose-Response Relationship among Recovery Workers after the Chernobyl Accident
- MedicineDose-response : a publication of International Hormesis Society
One of the reasons why no statistically significant radiation risks were observed for chronic lymphatic leukemia (CLL) by Ivanov et al. (2012) seems to be clear: this leukemia type is often accompanied by lymphadenopathy therefore probably remaining less frequently undiagnosed in the general population.
Observations on the Chernobyl Disaster and LNT
- Environmental ScienceDose-response : a publication of International Hormesis Society
The Chernobyl accident demonstrated that using the LNT assumption as a basis for protection measures and radiation dose limitations was counterproductive, and lead to sufferings and pauperization of millions of inhabitants of contaminated areas.
