I understand and am sympathetic towards your criticism of Linear No
Threshold, but I am unsure of how SI units are to blame. While I still
think in curies, I acknowledge becquerels are an easier to explain unit.
Sieverts are just rem with the decimal place moved. Same with grays and
I am not saying you are incorrect; I am just saying I don't understand
what you are getting at.

You realize of course that this is here to stay and why?
SI units are proclaimed to be RISK BASED and are a linear units
enumerated all the way down to 0. So like 1984's Newspeak - SI units
make it impossible to speak anything other than LNTH - thus making a
hypothesis - law!
It kinda hard of blame anyone for using the units as prescribed -
ridiculous as it may be.
