CDC radiation chart
Pia, I saw this in your twitter feed where the CDC weighs in on radiation hazards. The bias of nuclear guidelines forced on us by the nuclear industry and government is quite clear in this chart.  No differentiation is made for an external dose and an internal dose.  Notice category 3 implies 20 or more years before any risk to health from cancer symptoms.  No other health risks to immune systems or endocrine systems are considered.  Between the hours and days of category 4 and the decades of category 3 is a long time to ignore.  I wonder what else a radiation exposure was doing to your health for that long. Category 2 makes it all sound so safe.  I just had to vent a little against such an oversimplification foisted on the public.
