Document 2005 ICRP Recommendation
 
Dear Mr. Valentin,

I don't agree with the new recommendation to increase the permitted
radiation dose limits for exposure from nuclear plants, from 0.3 mSv a year
to 1 mSv a year. Based on the 1990-studies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the
ICRP should have lowered the permitted dose to 0.2 mSv.
I urge you to not give into the lobbying from the nuclear businessmen. ICRP
should base radiation exposure standards on independent and thorough
scientific investigations, not on the pressure of the nuclear market place.
For the time being, I want the ICRP to continue with the 0.3 mSv constraint
limit for radiation exposures for the public.
I urge you to reconsider the ICRP recommendations and to listen to the voice
of those who really care for public health.
You can reply by sending an e-mail to: smeulend.vuur8_willem@belgacom.net

Yours sincerely,

Willem Van den Panhuysen
