61. Now you need to build strawmen, eh?

Can't deal with what was actually said... so you just make stuff up. Now I'm supposedly claiming that radiation never killed anyone?

People have been killed and made sick from nuke accidents.

Yep... when they're exposed to MUCH more radiation than any member of the public (or almost any plant worker) has seen.

There is a reason they let nuke workers only get so much radiation before they are forced to retire.

Same answer as above. And that threshold is set well below the more dangerous levels.

There is a reason medical pros who work with rads are very careful about how much radiation they get.

And what you continually ignore is that the amount actually matters. Yes, radiation can do damage... but we're all exposed to radiation all the time (including internal doses). Safety levels tend to be set well below the threshold below which damage cannot be statistically identified. Many tens of thousands of Japanese citizens have had very detailed measurements of their internal dose and nobody in the general public came anywhere close to those levels.
