Second to invoking the "healthy worker effect", pooling appears to have become the most popular trick pulled off-the-cuff in order to cover up undesirable data in this field.

"Controls", as much as possible after a bomb, were very carefully sought and showed the model-predicted increase in breast cancer at over 10 rads. That gives more confidence that the  finding of LESS breast cancer at 1-9 rad than without radiation was properly controlled, ("expected").

These data cannot be influenced by the 1977 paper pooling low dose data to hide the unwelcome fact that low dose radiation prevents cancer, as low dose sunshine prevents rickets. Radiation is essential for best health, like vitamins or iodine. All can be overdosed.
