Whereas 1943 is the official date for the creation of the term hormesis, a more careful look reveals that southam actually first employed the term in his 1941 undergraduate thesis in this thesis, southam acknowledged the occurrence of biphasic dose responses in bacterial studies but did not cite any references a copy of.
