Re: Low Radiation May Not Be as Harmful

There is a lot of work in the literature - as far as back in the 50's, suggesting that not only is the response not linear, but at low levels radiation may even have beneficial effects - "radiation hormesis". It would be very interesting to have someone in the know help us reconcile this with the r...
