DOE: Low Level Radiation
It's a risk we all get to take.  In order to have atomic bomb making material, ionizing radiation exposure rates would rise from the mining and refining to cooking up the plutonium in a nuclear reactor.  Much testing has been done, not for it's safety, but to see how much exposure the public will take before an outcry is raised.  Expensive testing, beyond the capability of the common man, that tells us so little we have no working knowledge or; maybe, informed consent is not desired,  Guidelines are adjusted upwards as ionizing radiation contamination spreads.  The dilution is the pollution. The risk has not been clearly defined for cancer and risks other than cancer are seldom mentioned or included in the regulations that these agencies mentioned above are considering.  They are trying to decide how much more radioactive pollution will be allowed when the only good answer is actually none.
