About XLNT Foundation
People are concerned about ionizing radiation because the government says even the smallest amount of radiation causes cancer, based on a model known as the linear no-threshold (LNT) model. However, there is no justification for the LNT model, as the cancer rates have actually reduced when people were exposed to low levels of radiation, completely contradicting the LNT model. But, we cannot use low-dose radiation to prevent cancers because of the fears and concerns regarding low-dose radiation based on the LNT model. Therefore, the aim of XLNT Foundation is to inform the public about the beneficial effects of low-dose radiation and campaign for the elimination of the use of the LNT model in government policies and regulations so that we can utilize low-dose radiation to prevent cancers. This is very important for public health as traditional approaches to fight the war on cancer have failed, and cancer death rates have not declined much in the past fifty years, in spite of tremendous investment and efforts. If we abandon the LNT model, it would reduce the fear and concerns regarding low-dose radiation, and so would result in many beneficial effects for the society such as: - enable study of low-dose radiation for the prevention and treatment of cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, etc. - reduce the tremendous casualties, economic harm, and disruption of life in the event any future radiation-related accidents - reduce regulations and reduce cost of various applications of radiation including nuclear power plants - reduce fear of nuclear power plants and enable widespread utilization of safe, clean, and cheap nuclear power in developing countries, and this would accelerate economic development. - reduce the harm to patients from misdiagnoses or missed diagnoses due to not performing diagnostic imaging studies due to patient or physician radiation concerns or poor image quality due to radiation dose reduction efforts.
