The Polonium articles stimulated debate about the dose one receives from smoking. We found several sources saying 1300 mRem per year, and a Health Physics Society source giving a value of 16,000 mRem/yr (that's right, an order of magnitude difference). What values do some of you use, or what sources do you trust? Thank you for any replies you care to make!!              Ed Battle
