John Dunn, MD, JD: The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is charged with identifying and mitigating environmental risks. This article discusses US EPA’s misguided decision to use the Linear-No-Threshold (LNT) cancer risk model as a basis for regulating exposure of the public to ionizing radiation such as is associated with residential radon. The Health Physics Society (HPS) has stated that reliance on the LNT model “…tends to foment the public’s fear of all types of radiation . . . reliance on the LNT model, especially at very low doses and dose rates, is inappropriate and can exaggerate the risk.” The HPS also condemns “collective” (cumulative) dose as a measure of radiation health risk. https://junkscience.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Health-Physics-Paper-edited-July-28-2018.pdf

The unrealistic Linear No-Threshold LNT model for radiation safety is as harmful to human beings as totally out of control wildfires are to plants and animals. LNT with Collective Dose Corollary destroys tens of thousands of lives after accidents and in depriving best medical practice.
