The piece at junksciencewatch is a lot of nonsense and vitriolic misinformation believed by most to be the work of Richard Wakeford ex head of research at British Nuclear Fuels. Check out www.chrisbusbyexposed.org
You people need to examine the evidence rather than writing knee jerk (and not very original) attacks. Your risk model has been dismantled by epidemiology and by laboratory and theoretical science. There are hundreds of peer review papers which show this to be the case. Ad hominem attacks on me wont change that. In addition, cases are being won regularly in courts on the basis of the uselessness of the ICRP model which you believe in. You can even see Dr Jack Valentin, the editor and secretary of ICRP admitting that his risk model is wrong and cannot be used for internal exposures on vimeo.com. Just google valentin+busby+vimeo for the whole video proceedings in Stockholm in 2009. I am happy to discuss all this with you on a scientific level, but it seems that none of you are scientists in the philosophical sense. I challenge you to show that your risk model is not in pieces. UNSCEAR and ICRP just cherry pick their supporting papers, all the A-Bomb stuff. They fail to cite anything that shows they are wrong. Check out www.euradcom.org for the Lesvos Declaration. But you wont look at the research: you will just attack everyone and say they are making a living out of scaring people. Or some other attempt to deny what you must know in your hearts to be true.
If your most scientific analytical response is "nuff said" then better get back to the kindergarten or the local beer saloon where this is the level of discourse.

He's a chemist who has a lot to say about ionizing radiation.

He invokes Steve Wing and John Gofman. 'Nuff said.
