104. If you don't provide a link it is harder to debunk your nifty graph chart
There is no doubt levels have decreased since above ground nuke testing was slowed or stopped.

But the fact is you ADMIT that one source of strontium 90 is nuclear power plant emissions. WHY have ANY emissions at all? WHY is that ACCEPTABLE to you when we KNOW that it causes leukemia, breast cancer, bone cancer, and infant mortality by mutating foetuses in the womb and also causing spontaneous abortions?

Saying that nuke emissions are not as bad quantity wise as nuclear bomb tests is a no brainer.

But if you live downwind of a plant and you also get strontium 90 in your milk (as your graph shows we are getting and WHERE IN THE HELL IS A COW EATING GRASS WITH 30 OR 40 YEAR OLD STRONTIUM 90 IN IT???) then you are getting a much higher dose of stronium 90 than those who live far away and get their milk from cows not near nuke emissions/effluents (unless it is in their feed source).

And your argument is ilogical. BECAUSE the sr 90 STAYS in the environment for so long but does gradually decay abd because the levels, as your graph shows were SO high, all you demonstrate is that the overall levels from the tests 30 and 40 years ago are declining FINALLY. But that does not mean that nuke plant emissions are GREATER than the reduction of the test sr 90 (meaning the ovrall levels may go down even though nuke plant emissions increase or remain steady from the advent of nuclear power plants (which your graph also seems to show - i.e not substantial or significant decline for more than 20 years since shortly after the last above ground chinese nuke test...

But some link to your graph would be nice if we are going to debate this fairly
