Hormesis is a phenomenon that until recently was not readily understood nor is it generally accepted. Through research and experimentation, we have gathered enough information to convince us to accept the validity and social impact of hormesis. We have related this possible phenomenon to other well-known research areas such as toxicology, acceptable risk, and free radicals. We believe that if the idea of hormesis were broadly accepted there would be many benefits to society.
