Censorship is heavy on this forum.
Nevertheless I try to explain what will happen next:
(once the LNT is toppled)

The nuclear industry will be happy to raise the pollution levels
to the maximum allowed extent, always bragging about the latest
scientific discoveries. They will joyously pick up the argument
how increased radiation levels benefit your health.
Once the barrier is broken, there will be no rationale left
preventing inflationary raising of allowed contamination levels.

LNT was adopted not for scientific reasons, but for political reasons.
When the nuclear industry can no longer follow LNT methods
because they already poisoned half of planet EARTH,
then there is only one logical step left:
