[ RadSafe ] Vitamin R : Radiation induced immune response DETERS spread of cancer

Prof Cohen's mind-boggling numbers (70% of USA population), enabling error bars used as points (to plot county lung cancer rates against 1/4 picoCurie/l radon levels)
  is historic in its "discrepancy" with any linear theory of radiation damage. Money spent for ALARA with radon is harmful. Cohen's work clearly shows more lung cancer where less radon, unchanged even after 100+ confounders calculated.
  I believe that, with the Taiwan Apt and NSWS data, it also shows a cancer- causing and life-shortening deficiency of radiation for most of the USA population and a need for public health action to increase "Vitamin R", the "essential trace energy"  of Cameron. It is better proven than beri-beri neuritis and heart failure was shown to be related to wheat whitening.  As with Vitamin B1, thiamine, public health should replace the missing nutrient, perhaps with thorium sand or uranium ore in homes.

  If it is practical to increase one's exposure by about 5 mrem per year, 
would someone tell me how to do it?
I did turn off my radon reduction system, but I refer here to whole body
