How far advanced is research on the health effects of low doses of radiation ?

All living beings are exposed to natural, and sometimes artificial, radioactivity. The radiation doses are very low, but absorbed regularly over decades. Evaluating the effects of this chronic exposure involves a very complicated process. It is nevertheless essential in order to adapt in the best possible way the policies for prevention and protection of exposed populations. Hence the launch of new research programs over the last few years, in particular by IRSN.

 A better understanding of low doses

We talk about low doses when radiation doses are below 100 millisieverts.  A brief overview.
