It is ad hominem argumentation on its face.  There is no answer to your 
question that would prove a thing.  For instance, how many folks would be 
able to relocate to a higher background area (job, family ties, family land, 
etc.)?  My guess is that proponents of radiation hormesis  do not worry too 
much about dental X-rays; is that the kind of answer that would convince you 
they mean what they say?  The bottom line is that it is dirty pool, and you 
know it.
