Description

Dr Cuttler was the guest speaker at our Annual Meeting Dinner in April 2013 when he spoke about events following the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, In this talk, Dr. Cuttler will discuss several developments over the past two years and the ongoing crisis of radiation fear and examine the political motivation for creating this fear. Dr. Cuttler’s work uncovered evidence of lower leukemia incidence of the Hiroshima atomic bomb survivors who were in the low radiation zone. The leukemia data fit a hormetic J-curve with a threshold of 50 rem. Dose-response on lifespan reduction also show a radiation threshold. This contradicts the basis for radiation protection and risk assessment that was established in 1956-1958. Beneficial effects, thresholds and the biological mechanism will also be explained. The rate of spontaneous DNA damage far exceeds the rate caused by background radiation. The effect of radiation on the very powerful adaptive
protection systems is what determines the dose-response characteristic. Low radiation up-regulates the adaptive protection systems, while high radiation impairs these systems.

The remedy for radiation fear is to expose and discard the politicized science.
