New Mexico was nuked in the early sixties I believe, were you living there at that time? And if I may ask, have you or your family had any negative Heath effects as a result?

Words without research or links to back them up online are just words, not even useful ones at that. And still not one freaking poster here has bothered to back up anything about their doom and gloom position with ANYTHING that is remotely factual.
I am done here as I have seen all I need to see. I am done.
For about the first 10 years of its operation, the SM-1 unknowingly released tritium into the waters of Chesapeake Bay, until the development of the Packard Tr-Carb detector, which was the first capable of detecting the low-energy beta decay of tritium. The instrumentation in the SM-1 pre-dated the development of solid-state devices and used vacuum tubes.
