abstract

This paper addresses four inter-related topics of current concern: (i) the relationship between man-made and natural radiation; (ii) the uncertainties in predicted consequences following low dose irradiation; (iii) the scope for using a Properly Prioritized Precautionary Principle (P4); and (iv) why unobservable effects should not be a cause of concern.
