Linear No Threshold (LNT), the radiation harm model which is the foundation for our radiation protection regulation is nonsense. It denies our undisputed ability to repair radiation damage. As a result it over-predicts harm in low dose rate situations, such as a nuclear
power plant release by many orders of magnitude. But LNT survives.

One reason is anti-LNT forces have not coalesced behind a single alternative. Another is that the most commonly suggested alternative, Linear With Threshold (LWT), has much the same problems as LNT.
