  • To reassess the use of the linear-nonthreshold dose-response model in the light of advancing knowledge, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements formed Scientific Committee 1-6 and charged it to evaluate the evidence for and against the linear-nonthreshold dose-response hypothesis without reference to any associated policy ramifications. To accomplish this task, the Committee reviewed the relevant theoretical, experimental, and epidemiological data on those effects of… CONTINUE READING
