I have written a dozen scientific papers including one in SCIENCE in 
1980 that show that
radiation induced cancer is not a function of cumulative dose and 
that the LNT does
not apply to radiation induced cancer.

The A-bomb studies involve promotion of ongoing  cancer rates in the 
Japanese population.
When Bernie Cohen showed quite conclusively that radon in homes is 
not a carcinogen
at low doses and that the LNT was wrong, he was assailed by 
establishment scientists
with imaginative but faulty explanations and criticism.

If LNT is the basis for all analyses as is common today,
the findings will always be consistent with LNT, a priori.

Science is supposed to be about truth rather than tradition.
