>> The clear message that ALARA imparts is that radiation must be
extremely dangerous even at very low dose levels. Otherwise, how could
such extreme control measures be justified?<<


I concur.

More justification for a reasonable and logical "Below Regulatory
Concern" threshold. That would eliminate the fear mongering, and allow
implementation of effective measures where the dose reduction is
warranted. This would facilitate significant cost savings, focus on the
real issues and allow the workforce to work on what is important, and,
get the politics out of radiation control and implementation programs.
