The Linear No Threshold model of radiation harm, which is the basis for current nuclear power regulation, cannot replicate both the harm we see when a large dose is received over a very short period, and the lack of detectable harm when the same or larger doses are acquired
over far longer periods. Therefore, it must be replaced.
This paper suggests a Sigmoid No Threshold model as the replacement, and applies that model to both the Fukushima and Chernobyl releases.
