Hormesis, Radioactive Waste, and You

Post by Pyrrho » Sun Dec 06, 2015 5:23 pm

Why, sprinkle radioactive waste from aircraft. For good health.

After months of in-fighting, the beleaguered Oregon Republican Party elected a new chairman last weekend. His name is Art Robinson, and he wants to sprinkle radioactive waste from airplanes to build up our resistance to degenerative illnesses.

Wow. I don't know anything about hormesis but considering that this guy is also an HIV-AIDS denialist (or skeptic) I don't think I'll just take his word for it that this would be good for our health.

Besides sprinkling us with radioactive waste, he also says:
On AIDS: "There is a possibility that the entire 'war' on HIV and AIDS is in error. U.S. government AIDS programs are now receiving $6 billion per year and are based entirely upon the hypothesis that HIV virus causes AIDS. Yet, the articles referenced above and numerous additional publications by scientists who have become involved in this controversy state that: attempts to cause AIDS experimentally with HIV have completely failed; thousands of AIDS victims are HIV-free; and HIV shows none of the classical characteristics of a disease-producing organism. Moreover, AIDS is not a unique disease—it is an increased susceptibility to many ordinary diseases presumably as a result of depressed immune response. This depressed immunity can result from many other factors including those especially prevalent in the AIDS afflicted population—drug abuse and unhygienic exposure to very large numbers of different disease vectors. Moreover, large numbers of HIV carriers who are symptom-free are being treated by powerful life-threatening drugs that kill people in ways very similar to AIDS."
Firstly: "attempts to cause AIDS experimentally with HIV have completely failed". It would a highly unethical experiment to attempt to cause AIDS in a human being by deliberately infecting them with HIV. And HIV is not known to cause a similar immunodeficiency syndrome in non-human animals, so injecting mice with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) would not work either. Different viruses affect different animals differently (or not at all). Similarly, some pathogens that cause disease in other species do not affect us.

It's like how you can build up a resistance to a poison by taking it in small doses, right? Like in The Princess Bride.

Therefore small doses of radiation would make us healthier? So, thanks TEPCO! :)
The biochemical mechanisms by which hormesis works are not well understood. It is conjectured that low doses of toxins or other stressors might activate the repair mechanisms of the body.
:D

It is essentially the theory behind homeopathy when someone figured out that having poison in the concoction may just kill you.

I love the mixing of mechanisms. "You can build up a TOLERANCE to alcohol!!11!!" to justify "you can build up a tolerance to cyanide/plutonium/country western music."

Yes: All the hairless mutants of the 23 century will just love these new plutonium filled Dove bars! Just don't get more than 3 of 'em close together at the same time.

Sad fact, intolerance to stupid gets worse with exposition. Must be an allergy…
