Leon Louw, Co-Founder Free Market Foundation, Licensing Director for Nuclear Africa, Bonne Posma, Chairman, Nuclear Africa: The nature and risks of nuclear radiation are widely misunderstood from the most advanced society to the least sophisticated societies. Many view nuclear radiation as they view ghosts and spirits. People who fear what they regard as ominous phenomena generally have difficulty explaining why. This facilitates the promotion by scaremongers of irrational fear. Although low-level radiation turned out to be harmless, or even beneficial, LNT remained entrenched wisdom. The effect has been to drive up nuclear power costs substantially if not prohibitively thus retarding the advance of nuclear power globally, especially in Africa and other developing areas where nuclear power could improve lives and socio-economic conditions dramatically.
