No radio-active by-products?....
My understanding is that success in achieving a 'cold fusion' reaction is determined by the neutron radiation radiation it produces. IE a large very active 'reactor' will produce a significant amount of neutrons (low energy at least) which wouldn't be good for anyone in the immediate vicinity for any length of time without a significant amount of high density shielding.
Of course I could be wrong - it happens
This is the problem with hippies there ignorant stance on everything nuclear has caused so many misunderstandings and ignorant fear among the uneducated and uninformed masses.
