Ortwinn Renn. Risks from chemicals & physical hazards such as radiation may influence the physical, natural & human environ. Risks from  environmental impacts & the safety of chem. & physical hazards are difficult to communicate because they are usually effective only over a longer time period, may induce negative impacts only in combination with other risk factors & can hardly be detected by human senses. Acceptance of hormesis suggests that low doses of toxic/carcinogenic agents may reduce the incidence of adverse effects. This report provides an evaluation of how the concept of hormesis impacts RC strategies & conversely how RC concepts & methods impact thinking concerning hormesis. Includes Rennís paper, 8 invited expert critiques, & his  rejoinder.
