The Japanese are not alone in being exposed to low-dose radiation; everyone is exposed to radiation daily, emanating from our food, buildings, etc. - and that's the good news! by Ed Hiserodt.

You may not believe the following claims now, but you will after reading this book. The LNT hypothesis unfortunately is widely regarded as the truth in many places

You may not believe the following claims now, but you will after reading this book. Low levels of radiation don't harm us. Our fear of tiny traces of radiation stops us from tapping a limitless source of clean energy. We could improve our health by increasing our exposure to radiation! For one thing, it may well reduce the risk of cancer. The LNT hypothesis unfortunately is widely regarded as the truth in many places. The author exposes this LNT theory for the fallacy it is. Hiserodt analyzes and refers to mountains of data refuting this theory. He also provides a very good exposition of the science and units of radiation.

Why "All things are poison; nothing is poison." You may not believe the following claims now, but you will after reading this book. * Low levels of radiation don't harm us. * Our fear of tiny traces of radiation stops us from tapping a limitless source of clean energy. * We could improve our health by increasing our exposure to radiation! For one thing, it may well reduce the risk of cancer. Hiserodt reminds us of a cardinal rule of pharmacology: "the poison is in the dose." Just as arsenic and salt are deadly poisons in large enough doses but necessary nutrients in much smaller amounts, copious data have been reported for decades showing that exposure to low levels of radiation (but considerably more than people normally receive) can actually increase one's health (a stimulatory effect called hormesis). Alas, though researchers have scrupulously recorded such data, when it comes to drawing conclusions they too often ignore their findings or treat them as a fluke. This subject that "very few of us understand" may seem intimidating at first, but Ed Hiserodt is the perfect guide -- friendly, clear, knowledgeable, and not a little irreverent. Step by step, he spells out the basic physics, tours the evidence he has spent years pondering, flays flimsy claims, and opens the door to exciting possibilities. Put it this way: if you're worried about the radon in your home... don't be. You'll also learn: What the media hasn't told you about Chernobyl, Three Mile Island... and the survivors of Hiroshima. * What we could do with the radioactive "waste" that we now try to get rid of. * What gravity, sound, heat, light -- and ionizing radiation -- all have in common. * Which is most dangerous: a reactor leak... a pint of salad oil... or a handful of dirt? * How did X-rays help Professor Shrader's Guinea pigs survive the diphtheria bacillus? * Why it's impossible to steal nuclear fuel from a functioning reactor. Sorry, Mr. Terrorist.

All members of the public need to know the exaggerations by media, and some government agencies, of risks of radiation and the perfect safety record of nuclear power in the USA, which has been largely distorted to the public. The short- and long-term alternative to nuclear power plants is further destruction of the environment from digging coal underground or in surfact mining and destruction, oil spills, and gas explosions that destroy and kill. This book also refers to others that need to be read. See also the first two chapter of my book, Actions for Survival, which documents my personal experience with media misinformation, which has affected nuclear energy as well as our civil defense efforts.

I did not give it 5 stars because the author has some minor errors of science, but this does not detract from his overall message.

I have been studying radon for over 27 years and use to operate a radon calibration chamber. This is the true story about radiation exposure, not to miss-information being promoted by the EPA and state health departments. If you care about true science you need to read this book. Don't be misled and terrorized by political agendas.

I was amazed to find out that this book has been first published in 2005, almost 10 years ago. Yet the LNT theory is still very much alive. I enjoyed rading the book. It is written in a very readable style and it is actually hard to put down. Unforunately, it contains some factual errors. (For instance, it is not necessary to intrduce extra neutrons in order to ignite a plutonium bomb - quite the contrary is true: the spontaneous fissions provide so many neutrons that is difficult to make the mass critical fast enough). None of the errors are invalidating the basic message, they just erode the credibility a bit - and they cost the book the fifth star. It would neverthelass deserve a wide audience. I recomend it warmly.

This is very well written. I have researched much of the material discussed and it appears to be correct. This material does not have any serious challenge by anyone. Radon is not a threat and the “linear no threshold” theory should never be applied to low dose radiation. The LNT is today everywhere, applied in many fields, and there certainly is no justification for it. The author gives us a real good grasp of radiation and how politics are adversely affecting us.

There is nothing really new in this book. This information has been known for years. The author has done a very good job of pulling it all together for us laymen.

Alas, the politically correct ignore it to their own detriment.

A bit repaticious but interesting.

The book concerns the faulty hypothesis that any amount of radiation, no matter how small can be dangerous (the Linear No Threshold or LNT hypothesis). The LNT hypothesis unfortunately is widely regarded as the truth in many places. The author exposes this LNT theory for the fallacy it is. Hiserodt analyzes and refers to mountains of data refuting this theory. He also provides a very good exposition of the science and units of radiation. He demonstrates that the wealth of data indicates that some radiation even increases human health (hormesis). Thus Hiserodt refutes a key pillar of the ecofreak movement that wants to stop all human progress. This book should be read by all Americans.

This unfortunately unique work should have been written much earlier. This book is a must read for anyone thinking about the energy problem.
Great reading for anyone who fears even small amounts of radiation or opposes clean, safe, CO2-free nuclear power.
