This project will examine the controversy surrounding the health effects of radiation at low doses. Guidelines based on the questionable conclusion that there is no lower threshold to such effects currently impede the progress of several nuclear-related industries. Working from literature and interviews, we will assess the appropriateness of the current and proposed guidelines, discuss the parties involved in the regulation process, and examine the potential benefits and detriments to adapting a new model for policy implementation.
