Wade Allison - Much is known of the biological impact of radiation on life. Like sunshine, low levels of radiation can be beneficial and only very high levels in acute exposures can cause death or cancer. Only the extremely conservative advice from ICRP continues to support ALARA as a basis for nuclear safety. This influence, however discredited, still entrenches the bureaucratic structure of radiation protection today. Current “safety” standards are unfounded in science.

Wade Allison - Radiation and Reason. A list of the pros and cons of nuclear energy is straightforward; we need it, it is safe, but people are frightened of it. But the need to replace fossil fuels with another large base-load source is widely understood and its safety has been demonstrated many times.
