Last January a meeting of distinguished scientists was held in Carlsbad, 
New Mexico, to discuss the need for an ultra-low (near zero) radiation 
effects laboratory. Until we can study the effects of near-zero exposure to 
ionizing radiation, we will not truly understand the risks or benefits 
associated with low level exposure to ionizing radiation. Attached as a PDF 
file is the final report from that summit. By working in a radiation free 
environment where radon is filtered from the air and food contains only 
stable potassium,  we can directly evaluate the cellular and somatic 
responses to radiation and its absence. Some people claim we know all we 
need to know about ionizing radiation effects, but we really don't.
