Pollution Kills More People Than Anything Else...

Nov 7, 2017 by

http://Pollution Kills More People Than Anything Else The most comprehensive report to date on environmental pollution shows that filthy air, contaminated water and other polluted parts of our environment kill more people each year than anything else– smoking, hunger, natural disasters, war, murder, AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria – costing us $4 trillion a year....

Subjecting Radiologic Imaging to the Linear No-Threshold Hypothesis: A Non Sequitur of Non-Trivial Proportion...

Jan 29, 2017 by

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27493264 Abstract Radiologic imaging is claimed to carry an iatrogenic risk of cancer, based on an uninformed commitment to the 70-y-old linear no-threshold hypothesis (LNTH). Credible evidence of imaging-related low-dose (<100 mGy) carcinogenic risk is nonexistent; it is a hypothetical risk derived from the demonstrably false LNTH. On the contrary, low-dose radiation does not cause, but more likely helps prevent, cancer. The LNTH and its offspring, ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable), are fatally flawed, focusing only on molecular damage while ignoring protective, organismal biologic responses. Although some grant the absence of low-dose harm, they nevertheless advocate the “prudence” of dose optimization (i.e., using ALARA doses); but this is a radiophobia-centered, not scientific, approach. Medical imaging studies achieve a diagnostic purpose and should be governed by the highest science-based principles and policies. The LNTH...
