Are Organisms Adapting to Ionizing Radiation at Chernobyl?

No they are not, according to a recent study by Professors Anders Pape Møller and Timothy Alexander Mousseau

“Although hormesis is often purported to have a role in adaptation to radiation, we are unaware of even a single study demonstrating hormetic effects of ionizing radiation under field conditions. Again, this boils down to the question of how to make a rigorous test, with reciprocal transplant experiments being the way forward.”
