WRONG, John, is your opinion of the huge, Nuclear Shipyard Workers Study.
  It is all the more believable in Cameron's analysis,
   since it was designed to prove the opposite of what it did with a one-tail test (insofar as epidemiology can ever prove anything). Much federal money and huge numbers with great attention to avoid healthy worker effect made Cameron's analysis in, "Is Radiation an Essential Trace Energy?"  very credible to Pollycove in his, "The biologic and Epidemiologic Foundation of Radiation Hormesis".

  Go to                 rad-sci-l at WPI.EDU        rad_sci_health at yahoogroups.com
  for better information than you keep in your dusty file.
  Your bureaucratic job protectors in Taiwan obstruct Chen and Luan from getting more data than presented in the J Assoc Am Physicians and Surgeons Spring, 2004, but that is as impressive as the first hundred cures with penicillin, and far more than Snow's diarrhea deaths stopping when he took away the pump handle to Thames sewage.
  Come to our DDP meetings and question Rockwell, Cohen Luckey, Pollycove and the most credible of scientists about the most recent studies.

  Dr. Long,
As noted many times, the Naval Shipyard Workers Study
is not a good study. The study of Taiwan study was
just the cherry-picking of data with no reliable
epidemiological study performed. I will leave Dr.
Cohen to comment on the results of his work.

Basing your conclusions on bad science gives invalid
results. But you know that, and just refuse to
understand the science. Try referencing move recent,
reliable studies.
