24. Hyperbole my ass/ Strontium 90 and radioiodine are NOT like solar rays
Edited on Wed Dec-02-09 05:14 PM by Liberation Angel
You simply haven't got one fact right here.

Radiation and waste DO get out into the environment (they emit radionuclides and put effluents in the water). The waste itself has to be stored for 250,000 years to supposedly assure it doesn't get into the environment.

Jesus - civilization is only 5,000-10,000 years old. There is NO WAY you can ssay this does not get into the environment. it is IN the environment.

There may not be "special" radiation but there are certainly different sorts of radioisotpes and radionuclides based on their chemistry and effect on the human tissue and genes of humans and all creatures.

For example, stoontium 90 mimics calcium and gets absorbed by the teeth and bones, gets into the bone marrow and then the blood and causes brain and bone and soft tissue organ cancers.

A Little too much sunlight might give you skin cancer (or might protect against it) but the effluents from nuke plants gets into our teeth and bones and stomachs.

The french ones emit radiation as well

You are pitifully misinformed.

This past sumer the French reactors were so messed up they had to import energy. Just for the record.
