33. The study anyone who is not sure (or who is sure it is safe) should read on nuclear power
The European Study on Radiation Risk conclusions (link)

while this does not sort out workers and civilians it provides the foundation for my overall concern and analysis.

I will say this:

I worked in the nuclear industry briefly.

I worked on NRC hearings re: waste storage. I that capacoity I worked qith whistleblowers and some of the toip experts in the field (including one member of the current NRC)

I worked on the staff of a Congressman whose committee included nuclear plant safety and I researched these issues (including exposure levels and risk and cost/benefit analysis)

I grew up in a nuclear community where I was and am a downwinder.

This study pretty much sums up the problems and the issues:

http://www.euradcom.org/2003/execsumm.htm

Their conclusions/summary is that man made nuclear radiation is killing ans will kill tens of millions.

Workers get it (exposure) in the highest doses usually and they get it first. The nuclear industry, like the tobacco industry, is covering up the reports on the dangers.
