Ionising Radiation, are we safe?

Ionising Radiation, are we safe?

Posted on Oct 9, 2013 by Safe Radiation

Modern radiation safety protection principles are based on a no threshold linear relationship between the radiation dose and the detriment it can cause to exposed individuals. Although some scientists question the validity of this linear hypothesis, it is considered a safe approach in light of our current understanding about the harmful effects of ionising radiation. Theoretically, the linear hypothesis means that even a tiny amount of radiation dose could be harmful although the...
