  1. ncbi request reprint What can epidemiology tell us about risks at low doses?
    J S Puskin
    Radiation Protection Division, U S Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC 20460, USA
    Radiat Res 169:122-4. 2008
    ..Ongoing epidemiological studies of chronically exposed individuals receiving very low daily doses of radiation can be used, however, together with radiobiological data, to critically test whether such a threshold is plausible...

    J S Puskin
    Office of Radiation and Indoor Air, U S EPA, Washington, DC 20460, USA
    Health Phys 84:526-32. 2003
    ..Hence, the observed ecological correlation provides no substantial evidence for a protective effect of low level radon exposure...

    Jerome S Puskin
    Office of Radiation and Indoor Air, U S Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC 20460, USA
    Radiat Res 166:193-208. 2006
    ..Measurements of exposure in these indoor case-control studies rely on different types of detectors than those used in mines, and the estimates of exposure are again a major source of uncertainty in these studies...

    D J Pawel
    U S Environmental Protection Agency MC 6608J, Washington, DC 20460, USA
    Health Phys 87:68-74. 2004
    ..Results include numerical estimates of lung cancer deaths per unit exposure, which had not been provided in BEIR VI...

    David J Brenner
    Center for Radiological Research, Columbia University, 630 West 168th Street, New York, NY 10032, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:13761-6. 2003
    ..This linearity assumption is not necessarily the most conservative approach, and it is likely that it will result in an underestimate of some radiation-induced cancer risks and an overestimate of others...
