[ RadSafe ] Low-Dose Radiation Benefits: Taiwan, LNT, & the Truth

I recently reviewed  data and analysis regarding the massive radiation exposure 
of residents of the Taiwanese apartment building that held significant levels of 
Co-60 in its structure. The health outcomes for residents of these apartments 
appears to be strikingly better than statistical  expectation and the 
probability that such an outcome could occur by random chance vanishingly small. 
Combining this assessment with many others that support the validity of 
Radiation Hormesis, I have to wonder why the concept is not accepted by the 
radiation standard settiing bodies such as: ICRP, NCRP, EPA, etc. ["The 
priesthood"]. My guess is that they need to perpetuate the LNT nonsense in order 
to justify their existence. Maybe I am wrong in this conjecture--and perhaps 
someone on this radsafe list can straighten me out. So----what's your guess.

Phobia Thank you

Dear Dr Scott,

Thank you very much for sending me the power point presentation on low-dose 
benefits of radiation.It offered a very useful exposition of outstanding issues 
and highlighted a novel approach in interpreting them

Recently I summarised the Health Physics (March 2011) paper titled  “Exploring 
Biological Effects of Low
Level Radiation from the other Side of Background” for the benefit of the 
readers of The Hindu  one of the most respected multi edition English dailies in 
India. I contribute to The Hindu regularly. It publishes a very popular Science 
and Technology section every week

You can access my article  

With warm regards
