It has been suggested in this on-going discussion about the lack of
data supporting LNT in radiological risk assessment, that an approach
similar to conventional toxicology might be used.
However, for non-radiological carcinogens, I believe that the same
LNT approach is used in conventional toxicology. Slope or risk
factors that convert exposures to cancer risk are used, without
threshold. There is no "no effect" level assumed for cancer risk.
