A new study has found that low doses of radiation could have beneficial effects on health
12 March, 2007
The findings, published in the latest issue of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, found that low, chronic doses of gamma radiation at 50 to 200 times background levels had beneficial effects on the stress axis and the immune axis of natural populations of meadow voles. The paper provides evidence of hormesis from the only large-scale, long-term experimental field test ever conducted on the chronic effects of gamma radiation on mammals.

Subjecting female or black students to stereotypes when they are in the numerical minority diminishes the academic performance of some, but may prompt others to higher levels of achievement. This resilience, according to a University of Toronto study published in the May issue of The Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, suggests that the debate surrounding segregated schools or classrooms for black or female students requires more nuanced solutions.
