Challenge LNT model based work

 

The volume of publications that use the LNT model is staggering and it would not be feasible to refute all such publications. A large number of these are funded by government grants or public funds. A campaign needs to be launched with the funding agencies and government departments to defund continued work based on the LNT model, on the basis that they do not benefit but actually harm the public. When such funding dries up, the volume of publications based on the LNT model would be reduced. Among the actions to be considered:

 

  • Challenge such publications by writing Letters to the Editor, Commentaries, etc.

  • Send an appeal to funding agencies to not fund research grants which use the LNT model to justify the work
