I would have to say that at this time, I agree the risk is small.
But I DO NOT agree that the risk is non-existent.
One thing that they have seen time and time again when there is a nuclear incident is it’s not at all predictable about what ares get how much. Some areas downwind get by and receive almost no radiation at all.
Other areas get doses that are far, far beyond what the models predict.
And I think it’s a good thing that people can come to the forum and ask questions and discuss things. They openly admit they do not know everything. They are just trying to find out more.
Now there is a certain contingent of knowitalls who come and do nothing constructive, and just heap scorn.
Well I’m not happy that the knowitalls simply didn’t just warn us this was going to happen a week ago.
I guess we should humbly bow to their overpowering flatulence.
Thanks for the info. There has always been alot of confusion when it comes to rads and rems and LD50 number.
But one thing is sure: less is better than more!
We are in agreement...I don’t believe the risk is non-existent either, unless someone is saying we are going to each get a 750 Rad dose on the west coast.
Then, yes...THAT particular risk is non-existent. But there are a lot of other risks...yes.
That would definitely be a health hazard...
