Doug et al.,

Where do you find a "public exposure limit in EU regs" of 2.5 microSv/hr???
This corresponds to 21.9 mSv/y. Either your or my calculator is wrong!
Please do not distribute such wrong information on RADSAFE, we are molested
enough by mass media and the relevant groups.

It would be understandable if they had stated " ..... compared to the 
regulatory limit for public exposure of 2.5 microsieverts/hr" as this is 
the public exposure limit in EU regs....

But unfortunately, many organizations will take regulatory limits and try 
and "go one better"........
