8:40 pm       Talk 3:  LNT Model in Health and Safety
by Dr Stephen W Cheung

Linear-No-Threshold (LNT) is a model commonly practiced by health and safety professionals.  It means if an agent (such as radiation) is known to cause humansharms at high dose, then harm exists no matter how small the exposure is.  LNT allows "no threshold" for safety at low dosage.  Protective measures and regulations must be installed to ensure minimal public exposure to this agent.  However, there are plenty of everyday examples and evidence that some agents at low dosage not only cause little damage but even bear benefits.  We will discuss LNT and a few examples contrary to this model.
Dr Cheung grew up in Hong Kong and did his college and graduate degree in the US.  He began his career as a research scientist on a NASA program at Stanford University.  His interest in microwave technology led him to join Varian Medical Systems and later Accuray Inc. in the 2000s as head of microwave systems; both company supply radiation therapy systems.  He was the principal investigator of special projects funded by the Dept of Homeland Security.  In 2013, he received a national award for successful development and commercialization of the innovative systems.  He holds 5 US patents and is author of two books on microwave technologies.  Dr. Cheung worked in Hong Kong from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s. He was general manager of the Electronics Division at the Hong Kong Productivity Council and later VP of a consumer electronics manufacturer overseeing new products.  Dr. Cheung is a frequent speaker at HKETA gatherings and other organizations in HK.
