forbes.comAug 2020 Radiation And The Value Of A Human Life
The 63rd HPS meeting in Cleveland discussed, among other things, how much we are spending trying to adhere to absurdly-low radiation limits fostered upon society by the LNT, trying to save one theoretical life while not saving millions of real lives for the same amount of money. --
harvard.eduAug 2020 Edward J. Calabrese argues that Muller's LNT model is wrong.
In his Nobel Prize Lecture of December 12, 1946, Hermann J. Muller argued that the dose–response for radiation-induced germ cell mutations was linear and that there was ‘‘no escape from the conclusion that there is no threshold’’. However, assessment of correspondence between Muller and Curt Stern 1 month prior to his Nobel Prize Lecture reveals that Muller knew the results and implications of a recently completed study at the University of Rochester under the direction of Stern, which directly contradicted his Nobel Prize Lecture. This finding is of historical importance since Muller’s Nobel Lecture
gained considerable international attention and is a turning point in the acceptance of the linearity model in risk assessment for germ cell mutations and carcinogens. --

Many people are afraid of radiation, but scientists make clear that radiation is not so dangerous. Therefore they argue for a relaxing of the safety limits. (LNT) --

medicinenet.comDec 2018 Choosing Toothpaste
A high concentration of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) can cause problems for patients who have dry mouth. Toothpastes vary in the amount of SLS they contain. Avoid SLS.
Some toothpastes include plaque-control agents such as pyrophosphates and zinc citrate that prevent plaque from sticking to the teeth after they've been brushed. These are good.
Rinsing with an essential-oil containing dentifrice (mouthwash) for 30 seconds twice daily after brushing helps prevent plaque buildup. --

cns-snc.caJul 2018 Linear No Threshold Radiation Hypothesis
Shocking. Controversial. Believable. Presentation to a Michigan House committee looking at the topic of low level radiation. The LNT hypothesis states than any level of radiation exposure in dangerous. The contrary argument is while high levels will kill you, low level radiation is beneficial. Skip to the the 11:14 minute point to get to the start of the presentation. Was originally posted at http://www.house.mi.gov/MHRPublic/PlayVideoArchive.html?video=ENER-101717.mp4 --

scientificamerican.comMar 2015 New Solution for Knee Repair
Although surgeons can sometimes stitch together a torn meniscus—especially if the tear is in the outer region, which has its own supply of blood vessels—most of the time they can do little more than cut away the frayed pieces—a procedure that a major study in 2013 found was of questionable, long-term value... New techniques in orthopedic surgery aim to unleash the body's own healing power. A study published in December 2014 found it took just four to six weeks to restore a sheep's meniscus using this method (see Dr. Jeremy Mao). --
