Letter: Radiation danger: get the facts

Re: Scientist looks at nuclear fallout, Sept 12th edition

Wow. Almost the entire article is dedicated to trying to convince the reader that there is no danger from the radiation. So tired of this kind of disinformation. How about a little hard data? What is the actual level of radiation? What are the isotopes involved? Those of us who follow the nuclear industry and radiation issues learned decades ago that the actual facts in terms of level and types of radiation are much more useful in assessing the seriousness of contamination than the opinions of “experts.”
