Facts, not "picked" opinions, are what careful reviewers of Dr Cameron's studies have found to substantiate 3 years greater longevity with 0.5 rem added to the NSWS background. These reviewers include Myron Pollycove, MD PhD of the Nuclear Regulatory Commision (my classmate at UCSF) and other highly competent "peer review"
Regulator control of journals to protect your jobs are the real villians using selection
Refrigeration for varied diet, cleaner air, better medical care and other factors seem greater than ALARA for better longevity and cancer decrease.

Cameron. He picked a few studies that were favorable
to his position and ignored others. Nothing new here.
Obviously, our policies to keep exposures low is
responsible for our better health, incresed life
expectancy and lower cancer rate. How can you argue
with those facts? If you think radiation is so
important what are you doing to increase the radiation
exposure of you and your family?
