Can Small Doses of Radiation Harm You? The EPA Isn't Convinced.

Is a small dose of radiation haarmful?On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that the Trump administration was quietly seeking to roll back the Environmental Protection Agency's regulations on radiation exposure.

The story took a closer look at a rule the EPA proposed back in April called "Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science." When it was released, most coverage focused on the proposal's potential limitation of what studies the EPA could and could not use in decision-making—it essentially demanded the EPA not use any studies based on data that isn't publicly available.

Ironically, the transparency rule is hiding another agenda. Paragraphs scattered throughout the document make it clear that the proposed rule is meant to re-evaluate the science behind "the dose response data and models that underlie what we are calling 'pivotal regulatory science.'" That jargon means the EPA wants to challenge the assumptions that underlie its current guidelines on toxic exposure.
