[cdn-nucl-l] Amelioration of Type II Diabetes by Continuous Low-Dose-Rate Irradiation; Fw: reprints
The radiobiology textbook for teaching all western physicians is based on
the LNT hypothesis of radiation carcinogenesis.
Most physicians do not accept the idea that low doses of ionizing radiation
stimulate the damage-control biosystem, including the immune system. They
ignore the evidence that supports radiation hormesis.
Until we have a different radiobiology textbook, I would not expect to see
physicians giving this therapy.
