Scientists study using low-dose radiation – Philly.com.

POSTED: September 08, 2013

In very rare cases, using radiation to kill the primary tumor of a patient with metastatic cancer leads to the disappearance of tumors throughout the body.

Scientists can’t explain this amazing collateral effect, but it seems to activate an antitumor immune response.

Mohan Doss, a medical physicist at Fox Chase Cancer Center, believes the distant tumors melt away because of incidental low-dose rays emanating from the high-dose therapy. And that bolsters a theory he has researched for years: radiation at or slightly above natural background levels can stimulate the body’s disease-fighting defenses.

“When you have high-dose radiation, it suppresses the immune system,” he said. “Low doses actually enhance the immune system.”

Toxicologist says NAS panel ‘misled the world’ when adopting radiation exposure guidelines.

Aug. 13, 2013 — In two recently published peer-reviewed articles, toxicologist Edward Calabrese of the University of Massachusetts Amherst describes how regulators came to adopt the linear no threshold (LNT) dose-response approach to ionizing radiation exposure in the 1950s, which was later generalized to chemical carcinogen risk assessment.

Why Everything You Know About Cancer And The Environment Is Wrong – Forbes.

by Patrick Michaels, Forbes contributor – Aug. 8, 2013

Perseveration on global warming naturally inclines one to seek out other areas of  “science” where things aren’t exactly what they so obviously are, which brings me to the remarkable work of the most important toxicological scientist you have never heard of,   Dr. Ed Calabrese of the University of Massachusetts.

His work, painstaking and seemingly obscure, is upsetting just about everything we “know” about cancer and other illnesses commonly associated with environmental “pollutants.” If taken to its logical conclusion, it could derail much of Washington’s regulatory bureaucracy, particularly the EPA’s. Not that this is going to happen overnight, but as Calabrese’s work is increasingly accepted (as has been happening in recent years), the current regulatory paradigm will be forced to adjust.

Radon bill will not make it through the legislature | ksl.com.

SALT LAKE CITY — A bill sparked by a KSL investigation into Utah’s non-existent radon gas laws will not make it through the legislature.

The bill’s sponsor, Senator John L. Valentine, R-Orem, said the Radon Gas Provisions bill request hasn’t even been drafted. It’s apparently stuck in line at the drafting office with hundreds of other unprocessed bill requests.

“We made budget cuts over the last number of years just like all the agencies did, so we’re seeing a very slow process in getting bills through our offices,” he said. “It’s very much jammed in the system.”

Now, instead of a law to help protect Utahns from exposure to radon gas, Valentine has crafted a concurrent resolution asking for voluntary compliance.

“I don’t like to do laws just to mandate laws just for the sake of mandating. I do like to have people do voluntary things that are in their best interest,” Valentine said. “I think that’s where we start with the concurrent resolution.”
