If people are telling you dont worry etc... wright them off, because they are uneducated.

Go read the effects of low levels of radiation

Yes low levels of radiation will not kill or make you sick.

But any type of radiation contact starts to break down DNA, the risk associated with it are much more extreme than smoking.

But even low amounts of radiation has extremely bad consequences down the line...

Its just not immediate

Ex rays last for a second. This is a constant dosage, and wide spread food and water contamination.
The verdict on low doses of radiation over a long period of time is NOT OUT YET. Not enough studies or information is available and most of the info we have is decades old.

If you are somehow saying this is worse than Chernobyl, that is ridiculous. Chernobyl had radiation rates that killed helicopter pilots within days because the radiation levels were so high. While crews working in the Chernobyl facility received lethal doses in minutes. The Chernobyl explosion actually damaged the reactor core causing a complete meltdown. The explosion also released actual core materials into the atmosphere. In Japan, the fuel rods are still intact and only the housing of the reactor has been damaged from a hydrogen explosion. Radiation is being released because of low water levels. Water is used to cool the reactor and trap the radiation.

And no, low amounts of radiation does not have "extremely bad consequences". Smoking is far far worse than the slightly radioactive air that is drifting around Tokyo at the moment.

Stop being melodramatic and fabricating your own conclusions. And if you want to, keep them to yourself.

Remember the oil spill....

No leak
5,000 GPH
10,000 GPH
15,000 GPH
etc...

And i was the first to post about the internet caps on OCN Remember or should i pull that thread up too...
I don't really care what you've posted in the past. Do you honestly think that the media and governments can hide what's going on? Not in today's age of communication. Japan HAS to be honest about what's going on otherwise they face backlash from the international community.

I vote to close this thread based on the Hysteria reflected by the OP.

Not only do I have to deal with the worst air quality, highest number of chlamydia, most teenage pregnacies, dumbest city, and worst drivers in the nation, but now I gotta deal with increased risk of cancer compared to the rest of the country... Oh god how I love the central valley.

Closed.

This thread is pure example of what we do not need here at OCN, Fear mongering. There are no cold hard facts about the radioactive cloud or how bad it will be. Stop sensationalizing it, its pointless and serves no purpose. Unless your a Nuclear physicist or work with Nuclear Reactors you have nothing concrete to base your theory on. Its all theory, even at this point, no government or nuclear agency know how bad this will get, nor do they no by FACT how bad the radiation fallout will be. Nobody here is a Nuclear Physicist and even if you were its all speculation.

Thread closed for the sanity of everyone reading it.
