Recently by Ian Goddard: New A-Bomb Study Affirms Low-Dose Risk

A study just published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports the discovery that low-dose radiation is so safe evacuations from future nuclear disasters may be unnecessary. If another event like Fukushima occurs in the United States, the public could be allowed to live in the fallout zones, spared from the inconvenience of relocation and compensation for damages. However, does this new study conducted by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology actually support repeal of current evacuation policies?

In my new video we’ll observe that this new study is contradicted by extensive pre-existing research that the authors ignored. Moreover, we’ll observe based on prior research how the results of this study were a predictable consequence of only exposing the mice to low-dose-rate radiation for 35 days.
