Thanks for the update.  However, what is the reference
for the Tubiana/Aurengo paper?  My interests still
remain health physics, radiation science and medical
physics, so I would not follow a lot of the
radiobiology literature.  I am sure that if something
really important involving the LNT or hormesis had
come out, it would have made the scientific journals,
like Nature or Science.

Nevertheless, I will see about getting the second
reference in Radiation Environmental Biophysics.
