Balloon, satellite and other deep space probe observations on the intensity of low energy (0.1-10 MeV) gamma-rays are carefully examined with a view to understand the existing anomalies in their intensities and energy spectra. The observed spectral data is "unfolded" to deduce the true gamma-ray energy spectrum. The recently observed flattening in the spectral shape at about 1 MeV is shown to be likely to arise as a result of the gamma-ray detector response to a simple power law input spectrum.
