Submission + - Berkeley Research Suggests Low Radiation Damage Do 1

JSBiff writes: Breast Cancer researches at the Berkeley National Lab will be publishing a study, in which they, "have found evidence to suggest that for low dose levels of ionizing radiation, cancer risks may not be directly proportional to dose. This contradicts the standard model for predicting biological damage from ionizing radiation – the linear-no-threshold hypothesis or LNT – which holds that risk is directly proportional to dose at all levels of irradiation."

The evidence grows that low-level radiation should not be viewed as a threat to public health.
