Low-level radiation exposure less harmful to health than other modern lifestyle risks
Oxford, UK (SPX) Sep 19, 2017
Human populations have always been exposed to ionizing radiation, and more so in modern life due to its use in medicine, industry and the armed forces. Whilst the risks to human health from medium and high-level radiation are relatively well-understood, the risks at lower levels are less clear. Mixed messages about the safety of low doses of radiation from different sources have created confusio ... more
