The Radiation Hormesis Fantasy

Atomic Ideologies  Insights blog has a post on the subject.  I have a separate page devoted to it, where I compare it to creationism (Biologists are hiding the truth!  Evolution is a lie!  It's a conspiracy! HA! HA!).

This article on world-views is timely.  It's no coincidence that strongly religious people tend to deny biology, strongly pro-fossil fuel people tend to deny climatology, and strongly pro-nuclear (as well as strongly anti-nuclear) people tend to deny health physics.

It's human psychology....motivated reasoning, anchoring, confirmation bias, etc.
