I personally am appalled at how worried some Americans are over themselves when the radiation is exponentially more of a threat to Japan and much, much, much of a threat to Russia and some other nations than it will ever be to the United States.
Yet you have people buying iodine tablets in SoCal. >_>
I am no nuclear physicist but I know enough to know this, even if things get quite a bit worse, poses little to no threat to the United States. That is the scientific reality at this point.
Keep Japan in your thoughts!
'Radiation is good for you,' says Ann Coulter as she weighs in on Japan's nuclear crisis
‘There is a growing body of evidence that radiation in excess of what the government says are the minimum amounts we should be exposed to are actually good for you and reduce cases of cancer,’ she told Fox News TV host Bill O’Reilly.
President Barack Obama said Thursday that harmful levels of radiation are not expected to reach the United States, "whether it's the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska, or U.S. territories in the Pacific."
"Let me repeat that," the president said. "We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska, or U.S. territories in the Pacific. That is the judgment of our Nuclear Regulatory Commission and many other experts."
According to a press release from the White House, Obama continued: "Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health experts do not recommend that people in the United States take precautionary measures beyond staying informed. And going forward, we will continue to keep the American people fully updated — because I believe that you must know what I know as President."
