[Erroneous] 30 years follow-up and increased risks of breast cancer and leukaemia after long-term low-dose-rate radiation exposure...

An update on the irradiated Taiwan apartment resident data was published in British Journal of Cancer a week ago by Hsieh, et al. https://www.nature.com/bjc/journal/vaop/ncurrent/pdf/bjc2017350a.pdf . The conclusion of this publication is similar to that of the (Hwang,  2008) publication. The (Hsieh, 2017) publication claims increased hazard ratios for breast cancer and leukemia using LNT model based analysis of the cancer data (using 90% confidence intervals) – a conclusion that is similar to that of (Hwang, 2008) publication.  However, if we examine the total number of cancers observed, and compare to expected number of cancers, estimated using age dependence of cancer rates in Taiwan cancer registry, relative risk is calculated to be 0.83 (with 95% C.I. being 0.73 to 0.94). Their use of the LNT model for analysis allows them to hide this hormetic decrease in overall...

The Mistaken Birth and Adoption of LNT:An Abridged Version...

Oct 10, 2017 by

Abstract The historical foundations of cancer risk assessment were based on the discovery of X-ray-induced gene mutations by Hermann J. Muller, its transformation into the linear nonthreshold (LNT) single-hit theory, the recommendation of the model by the US National Academy of Sciences, Biological Effects of Atomic Radiation I, Genetics Panel in 1956, and subsequent widespread adoption by regulatory agencies worldwide. This article summarizes substantial recent historical revelations of this history, which profoundly challenge the standard and widely acceptable history of cancer risk assessment, showing multiple significant scientific errors and incorrect interpretations, mixed with deliberate misrepresentation of the scientific record by leading ideologically motivated radiation geneticists. These novel historical findings demonstrate that the scientific foundations of the LNT single-hit model were seriously flawed and should not have been adopted for cancer risk assessment.

Robinson_AB_JPANDS_2013 The discovery of radiation hormesis is equivalent, in the field of health physics, to the discovery of relativity and quantum mechanics in physics. It may be the greatest medical advance of this century. However, in collusion with the medical monopoly, government is depriving Americans of access to potentially revolutionary advances in...

Radiobiology and Radiation Hormesis – by Charles L. Sanders...

Sep 11, 2017 by

http://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319563718#otherversion=9783319563725 This book presents new information on radiobiology that more clearly refutes the linear no-threshold (LNT) assumption and supports radiation hormesis. Fresh light is cast on the mechanisms of radiation hormesis and the potential benefits of low-dose ionizing radiation in preventing and treating a wide variety of inflammatory and proliferative...

NEI-2017Jul18_A failed ontology_LNT model of radiogenic cancer The linear no-threshold model of radiogenic cancer is false. Because it fails empirically against superior empiricism, it becomes misinformation and opinion, not knowledge, but it is still advocated because it lends contentment to believers. We can no longer tolerate the universal application of LNT misinformation when, as people of science, we are about helping, not harming, humanity. By Charles W. Pennington and Jeffry A....
