103. Yes ALL commercial reactors have radiation emissions and effluents
They are permitted to spew them by law.

They are deadly and cause cancer.

Again, i worked in the industry and worked on safety hearings in Congress, so I am NOT ignorant. i am well educated on the subject (although I am sometimes not as artiulate as I'd like to be on these subjects.

Here is one piece of info on the subject:

This debate on what the SOURCE of the SR-90 and other radiation in the environment is can be resolved by the studies done showing higher levels NEAR or downwind of operating reactors in the baby teeth of those exposed. The nuke industry has been unable and unwiling to rebut these claims with any credibility or science whatsoever.

It is a shame that folks are ignorant of the fact that nuclear power plants have radioactive emissions and effluents as part of their regular operations.

THAT is where most pronukers ignorance can be demonstrably illustrated: nuclear plants spew radionuclide particulates as part of their NORMAL OPERATIONS. Only when they exced these amounts normally released do they even have to report it as a special incidet or event.
