Yea, that's where I want to start one ionizing radiation particle; alpha, gama or beta causing damage.
To this we can both agree?
Would others also agree?
If so maybe this could be that foundation I was looking to build on.
That one ionizing radiation particle; alpha, gama or beta an indication of the presents of one Bq; becquerel (One Bq is defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one nucleus decays per second)
Can we all agree ?edit on 22-1-2014 by donlashway because: (no reason given)

The picture is a microscopic image of the tissue of the lung in a rat. Also it is not a single atom of a radio nuclide it is more likely millions to trillions of them but that is still a very small speck of Pu dust. But size dosent matter it only take one alpha or beta particle to hit the right part of your DNA to cause replication errors with can lead to cancer.

A safe level exists.
Can your body handle an "x" amount of exposure and survive without immediate or lasting affects? If yes, safe.

Its not really the volume of water that is coming out of the plant that should be the topic of discussion its the amount of radio nuclides in the water that should be of concern. Sure if the water has 100 becquerel per gallon than the 300 tons or 720 gallons probably is not a big deal but if but if its millions of becquerels thats a different story. Im not saying either of those numbers are the correct numbers in the case of FNP but the point is its the level of contamination of the water needs to be taken into account.

And this is the Reason why we need to know "where" they
done this Measurement because there are a lot of
differences, the Amount of Radiation, the Type of
Radiation (Alpha-, Beta-, Gamma- or mixed)
and the Location!

Sure, it smells like a Conspiracy
(like the whole World History)
[and according to this we assume that the Mossad is responsible]
I wish you would be as Radical in your real Life

The Banqiao Reservoir Dam, located on the River Ru in the Zhumadian Prefecture of the Chinese Henan province, failed in 1975, killing an estimated 171,000 people (although some reports estimate that number to be as high as 230,000) and destroying the homes of 11 million people. It is considered to be the biggest dam failure in history, with more casualties than any other dam failure.
Built between April, 1951 and June, 1952, the Banqiao Reservoir Dam was designed in such a way that would allow it to withstand a large flood. This type of flood, where 300 mm of rain falls per day, is known as a “once-in-1,000-years flood.” The August 1975 flood, however, was what is known as a once-in-2,000-years flood, more massive than the construction of the dam had accounted for, meaning that more than an annual amount of rain fell in only 24 hours. Records indicate that 189.5 mm of water fell every hour, which translates to 1,060 mm per day. That far exceeds the province`s average annual rainfall, which is only around 800 mm. - See more at: engineeringfailures.org...
