Edward Calabrese, Professor of Toxicology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst: The Linear-No-Threshold paradigm, which asserts there are no safe exposure levels, is the product of a flawed and corrupted science. This recommendation would ultimately be accepted by leading regulatory and advisory bodies in the United States and internationally, and extended to other prospective hazards like chemical carcinogens.

Knowledge has advanced tremendously in the last five hundred years and is available to everyone in print and electronic form. Yet, great scientific untruths are still widely promulgated, like the Linear-No-Threshold Hypothesis in toxicology and radiation science. These are holding the world back from much greater progress.
