Me too and I have been for a very long time.
You guys always seem gloomy in this in thread. That is why I always like to bring good news.
According to a 1989 report from the National Institute of Radiological Sciences in Chiba, Japan, however, the current environmental radiation level (1.0 mSv/y) in Nagasaki was almost as low as background in other areas in Japan.
The current background radiation in Tokyo is 1.1mS/y - higher than Nagasaki (when I checked Nagasaki it was only 0.8 mS/y)

Quote:The realties, however, are otherwise. Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium. According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, “one millionth of a gram of plutonium, if inhaled can cause cancer”.
Several populations of people who have been exposed to plutonium dust (e.g. people living down-wind of Nevada test sites, Nagasaki survivors, nuclear facility workers, and "terminally ill" patients injected with Pu in 1945–46 to study Pu metabolism) have been carefully followed and analyzed. These studies generally do not show especially high plutonium toxicity or plutonium-induced cancer results, such as Albert Stevens who survived into old age after being injected with plutonium. "There were about 25 workers from Los Alamos National Laboratory who inhaled a considerable amount of plutonium dust during 1940s; according to the hot-particle theory, each of them has a 99.5% chance of being dead from lung cancer by now, but there has not been a single lung cancer among them
Are you an evolutionist? Only the strong survive?
