The LNT model is devoid of merit. I explained the science that proves this fact
in my Health Physics Forum Article "Toward Improved Ionizing Radiation
Safety Standards, Health Physics 101: 84-93; 2011.

If you want a copy send a request to ograabe at ucdavis.edu

The EPA standards are ridiculously low due to their application of' the faulty
LNT hypothesis leading to the unnecessary expenditure of billions of dollars
moving virtually clean dirt and refuse to expensive waste disposal facilities.

This petition does not suggest eliminating radiation safety standards
but rather switching to scientifically sound standards.
