>>ALARA is just stupid.  No doubt, people believe they are fulfilling
ALARA, but does anyone really do it?  Or do they just reach a point
where they think, consciously or not, "That's low enough" and stop
trying to reduce doses?<<


ALARA is only "stupid" when the term Reasonable is not considered in the
operation. If a reasonable approach is implemented, then ALARA works
just fine. It's all how one defines reasonable.
