"Low Level

Edited by J. Muckerheide


Dr. Robert Thomas reports (1995) that:

"The analysis of the radium luminizer epidemiology study ... demonstrates that it is time to evaluate data objectively instead of formatting an extrapolation scheme beforehand and forcing data to fit a preconceived pattern such as linearity through a dose-effect origin. The no-effect dose levels discussed should signal that it is also time to reevaluate (again) the large variations in background radiation levels throughout the world and to cease being concerned with, and regulating against, minuscule doses for which no biomedical effects on humans have ever been satisfactorily identified or quantified."
