Robert Applebaum is a Certified Health Physicist, CHP, Emeritus. Below is Applebaum’s response to an attempt to increase radiation exposure limits, through the US NRC. Currently, the same players, Calabrese et al., appear to be trying to get the US EPA to increase radiation exposure limits. These limits are for the general population, through legal discharges into the environment. They are not for nuclear workers.

People knew and tried to stop it. They cared. Future generations dying of cancer by age 20, as life expectancy continues to drop, need to know we cared and tried to stop it. Many thanks for the reblog.
