"Dose-effect relationship and estimation of the carcinogenic effects of low doses of ionizing radiation" 

Maurice Tubiana, André Aurengo 

I.J.L.R, vol 2, N 3/4, pp 134-151 


Comparison between the Joint Report of the Académie des Sciences (Paris) and of the Académie Nationale de Médecine and the BEIR 7 Report 


Contrarily to the French Academies report, BEIR 7 report, published four months later, concludes that the linear no-threshold relationship (LNT) should be used for assessing the carcinogenic risks of low or very low doses. Since both reports rely to a large extent on the same data, the causes of this disagreement needs to be investigated. We shall consider below the various sources of this controversy.
