Data on the health effects of low-level radiation
- Chapter 6 "Fear of radiation, cancer, health, ALARA, cost" in Electrifying our World, Robert Hargraves (2021) a good summary of studies on the health effects of low-level radiation.
- Chapter 5 "An Alternative to LNT" in Why Nuclear Power Has Been a Flop, Jack Devanney (2020) Sigmoid No Threshold (SNT) is a better fit to the data. Also, this book has a good review of the history of LNT.
- UNSCEAR (2019) United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation, SOURCES, EFFECTS AND RISKS OF IONIZING RADIATION
- Sponsler, R. and Cameron, J.R. (2005) 'Nuclear shipyard worker study (1980–1988): a large cohort exposed to low-dose-rate gamma radiation’, Int. J. Low Radiation, Vol. 1, No. 4, pp.463–478. "The high-dose workers demonstrated significantly lower circulatory, respiratory, and all-cause mortality than did unexposed workers. Mortality from all cancers combined was also lower in the exposed cohort."
- Moss, D. (2013) 'An Analysis of Cancer Incidence in Taiwan Apartment Residents Subjected to Low Dose Radiation' interesting because this analysis of the data contradicts what the original authors concluded.
- Evans, R.D. (1974) 'Radium in Man', Health Physics, Vol. 27, No. 5, pp.497-510. "At cumulative dosages below the order of 1000 skeletal average rads no clinically significant radiobiological injury has yet been observed in the M.I.T. series over a time span of 40–50 yr in more than 500 persons."
