Blaine N. Howard, a Health Physicist took issue with our editorial.
"Scientists that I know laugh at the ridiculous furor that Utah politicians and media raised over Divine Strake," wrote Mr. Howard.
He cited several studies to support his contention that "There is no statistical evidence of excess cancer in Southwestern Utah" because of nuclear testing a half century ago.
"The only excuse for thinking there were fallout caused cancer deaths in Utah is a theoretical calculation using a false theory."
