Really? Funnier still.

No I didn't. I quoted on the 1st, that's different. It doesn't mean I then skipped the rest of your rant. As I said earlier, I read those extracts before you copied & pasted them. There's nothing of relevance in them.
You read nothing but the first post ,its obvious, and I'll get to why soon.
Laughable. You copy and paste a few newspaper clippings and smugly claim they're your source. I don't see any reference to 1000s of infants dying through the effects of radiation, can you? No, thought not.
At least I have a source. This is ATS pal, everything needs a source or its not worth posting.
Erm, it isn't an opinion, its a statement of fact, unlike your ad absurdum reference to Santa Claus.
Your claim is your own opinion which is NOT supported by one single news article, report, documentary , or experience.
If you're going to cite it please read it carefully and at least spell it correctly.
And as to why I know you only read the first link is because my last link is a PDF from the British Journal of Cancer by Department of Histopathology, Addenbrooke's Hospital, University of Cambridge, Camnbridge CB2 2QQ, K.
Another strawman! I'm only stating you cannot attribute cause.
Apparently you know more than them huh.
Well hang your head in shame young lad, you've done a splendid job this evening.
I'm glad your laughing. If I made such a fool of myself I wouldn't log on for a while.
Assessing the disaster's effects on human health
The majority of premature deaths caused by Chernobyl are expected to be the result of cancers and other diseases induced by radiation in the decades after the event. This will be the result of a large population (some studies have considered the entire population of Europe) exposed to relatively low doses of radiation increasing the risk of cancer across that population. It will be impossible to attribute specific deaths to Chernobyl, and many estimates indicate that the rate of excess deaths will be so small as to be statistically undetectable, even if the ultimate number of extra premature deaths is large.
"The EPA’s system has not detected any radiation levels of concern."
-originally quoted by routerboy
"Today, one of the monitoring stations in Sacramento, California that feeds into the IMS detected miniscule quantities of iodine isotopes and other radioactive particles that pose no health concern at the detected levels. Collectively, these levels amount to a level of approximately 0.0002 disintegrations per second per cubic meter of air (0.2 mBq/m3). Specifically, the level of Iodine-131 was 0.165 mBq/m3, the level of Iodine-132 was measured at 0.03 mBq/m3, the level of Tellurium-132 was measured at 0.04 mBq/m3, and the level of Cesium-137 was measured at 0.002 mBq/m3.
Similarly, between March 16 and 17, a detector at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Washington State detected trace amounts of Xenon-133, which is a radioactive noble gas produced during nuclear fission that poses no concern at the detected level. The levels detected were approximately 0.1 disintegrations per second per cubic meter of air (100 mBq/m3)."
"not .... of concern"
