31. As usual, you divorce the facts from the context
Occasional mammograms are not dangerous for most women. Your own quote points out that these findings concern women whoa re already at high genetic risk, and that after age 20 the risk is not statistically significant (which is what 'could have been due to chance' means.

Nobody disputes the potential dangers involved in nuclear power. The dispute here is over your conflating the existence of risk with a high risk probability. In short, fearmongering.
