This is in heavily read OpEdNews - always long on the OpEd or fiction
and propaganda and weak on news. Rob Kall, the site's owner has been
on a number of programs as well and he tolerates little dissent from
his propaganda pieces.

Media falsehoods about “background” and “low dose” radiation

The Truth About Radiation Joe Giambrone OpEdNews 3/20/2013 ”…….What you
will be told by your televised talking heads is that there is such a thing
as “background radiation” and that any and all radiation problems you may
encounter are of no more concern to you than eating a banana or flying in a
plane at high altitude. Are you really going to fall for that one?
They type this stuff with a straight face. The US Academy of Sciences
studied the effects of low-level ionizing radiation in a massive report
called BEIR-VII: Health Risks From Exposure to Low Levels of Ionizing
Radiation (2006). Well, the very first paragraph tells us, “A comprehensive
review of available biological and biophysical data supports a
“linear-no-threshold” (LNT) risk model–that the risk of cancer proceeds in a
linear fashion at lower doses without a threshold and that the smallest dose
has the potential to cause a small increase in risk to humans.”
So think about that. How then can the news media and government officials
proclaim that doses are so small that they are “safe” and of no concern?
Their own best available scientific data tells us that there is no “safe”
dose at all, and that all radiation is bad and to be avoided. Read more of
