    ---I strongly contend that my studies have disproven LNT in the low 
dose region in indisputable terms if one restricts considerations to 
logical analysis. No one has presented a counter argument that I have 
not clearly shown to be invalid. The only problem is that "the powers 
that be" are not willing to  go thru my analyses and understand them. If 
anyone thinks they have  another possible specific explanation for  my 
observations, I would be delighted to engage him/her  in a debate 
utilizing logical analysis.
