LNT Model Being Questioned

The linear no-threshold (LNT) model has been the basis for radiation protection regulations; however, the newly established XLNT Group contends that considerable research suggests weaknesses in this approach that merit revision. To support this revision, an XLNT action plan and supporting group have been established. The XLNT Group welcomes additional members and their input with a goal of establishing a credible basis for future radiation protection regulations. 

The action plan is available upon request from Associate Professor Mohan Doss, PhD, physicist at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
