I don't seem to be able to comment on Anil's site, since he constrains which identities one is allowed to use. However, his source claims that "low doses carry no risk."

A National Research Council study from 2006 looking at health risks from exposure to low dose ionizing radiation seems to disagree, concluding, "The committee concludes that current scientific evidence is consistent with the hypothesis that there is a linear, no-threshold dose-response relationship between exposure to ionizing radiation and the development of cancer in humans."

Thanks, Dan. Sorry I picked a bad thread to experiment with Facebook comments on. I'll circle back with my father in law and see if I can reconcile the facts.
