|Figure 2: Data from Figure 1 extended to high dose and with proposed analysis into an LNT component (solid line) plus a contribution at low dose from biological defence mechanisms (BDM) (small dotted line) to give a resultant behaviour at low dose (large dotted line), merging into the LNT line above 50 cSv|
