78. You cite CERRIE which, according to this report, are industry hacks
'"These radiation protection advisory commissions, and their offspring, the radiological advisory bodies in most countries like Britain's National RadiologicalProtection Board (NRPB, which shares many personnel with ICRP, yet cites the latteras an 'independent source' of advice), now publish advice on dose limits andprotection which becomes incorporated into law. They control the perception ofhazard from all things nuclear. They are all, however, lineal descendants of the first NCRP committee, staffed by people who all had interests in the development of theuse of radiation. They remain, to this day, a revolving door through which members of the nuclear establishment or those with research ties to it, pass in and out.?"

Your claim regarding "paranoia" is bullshit and an insult.

I worked in the industry in a department which dealt with health risks from nuclear radiation exposure to workers and the public.

I also worked on a Congressional staff for a subcommittee which dealth with nuclear safety issues.

There is nothing paranoid about these studies. They are solid studies by the ECRR which is dismissed by industry hacks.

It is like trusting the NRC in THIS country not to promote the nuclear industry as it has done for generations (back to its inception as the AEC The NRC is ALSO an industry revolving door for industry lobbyists (for the most part - there are exceptions on the staff).

I have studied the history, worked with industry whistleblowers and participated with experts in NRC hearings.

I suggest a little more research on the info at the link which lays out the problems with analysis of radiation exposure risks and models and conflicts of interest such as the CERRIE report writers.

so cut the bullshit derogatory slurs about paranoia.
