Problems of current radiation standards and solution

Grant Meadows

Grant Meadows, student at University of Wisconsin, Madison - The current safety regulations of low-dose ionizing radiation exposure are erroneous. The linear no threshold model (LNT), proposed in the 1950s and accepted as the science behind regulation protections, now serves as an obstacle towards progress, rather than a tool of the nuclear community. The LNT model should be replaced by the more accurate model, called hormesis. By adopting hormesis, a threshold model of acute and chronic radiation exposure can be instituted, leading to immeasurable gain for millions of people.
