Warning: Arnie Gundersen interviews a proponent of the nuclear lobby’s dose-response model
Piotr Bein 23.4.2011
On April 21, 2011, Arnie Gundersen interviews Dr. Steven Wing re. doses outside of Japan. Dr. Wing is a proponent of the Linear Non-threshold Model of dose-response to radioactive contamination. That model has proven wrong for internal doses as in air and food contamination by fallout from Daiichi. Therefore his conclusions re. behaviour adjustement to minimize risk in N. America are not a good advice, in my opinion. The lobby’s model has proven wrong in internal radiation exposure by a factor up to about 1000. The lobby’s model has not predicted the consequences of low-level radiation exposure in Europe after Chernobyl: about 1 million deaths of cancer only to the end of 2004. I have asked alternative experts for an opinion and will post if and when it comes in.
