35. No, I don't. EVERY exposure creates additional risk of harm
That is what the science means when it says that there is no dose so low that it does not potentially harm you.

It is PROBABLE that harm exists at every exposure, and therefore the risk of harm occurs with every exposure.

Some people are healthier, have "better" genes (those that can resist the harm), have better diets (which makes one less susceptible to harm) or otherwise are not as likely to be as harmed by low or high level radiation exposure. Some will survive without cancer or ill feelings in their bodies.

Danger is relative. If each exposure increases risk of breast cancer that, imho, increases the DANGER of the exposure.

The bottom line is that nuclear power plants ALWAYS emit and effluve toxic and deadly mutagenic and carcinogenic radionuclides that can kill and do kill people by giving them spontaneous abortions, cancer, damaged immune systems, damaged endocrine systems, damaged thyroids and deadly illnesses.

AND you mischaracterize the study: Women ALREADY at risk (due to their genes) have a 250% GREATER CHANCE OF GETTING CANCER if they get xray mammagrams when they are young (20 or under)

That i, s they are 2 1/2 Times MORE LIKELY to DEVELOP BREAST CANCER because of the Mammogram.

Get your facts right.

This is science and the fearmongering here is all about the fear of TRUTH on this subject by proponents of the nuclear death industry.
