Yeah for the scientificly educated they will realise how dangerous this is. As for the other people who expect to get their news from the TV, they will find out in due time.
As for the fact that they have only released an article on the perminant closure of the plant is LAUGHABLE!......No '*****'!
It actually makes me feel sad how many people rely on TV to bring them their 'news'!
As for the people who belive in this 'low quantity' CRAP, its not the radiation that kills you its the cancer that does when it gets onto your skin or in your digestive system! A single Beta/Alpah particle in your system would be the equivilent of shotblasing your insides, over a period of time! This is without taking into account the Plutonium which has a half life of 24,100 years! Yes let me repeat that 24,100 years!Edited by Flack88 - 3/31/11 at 5:15pm
