[ RadSafe ] Government has 'dirty bomb' cleanup guide

The spokesperson for the Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS)
reckons that persons returning to a site that has been cleaned up to 10,000
mRem/year "could cause one in four people to get cancer"...

Considering that at present about one in three people will get cancer, it
sounds pretty advantageous to the returnees.  Has anyone heard before that
NIRS is a proponent of hormesis?  The article just refers to them as a
'nuclear watchdog'.
