Background Radiation vs Small Radioactive Particle in your Body

Technorati Profile

There is a huge difference between background radiation zinging through a random molecule at random places in your body, and a radioactive particle permanently lodged in one place in your body, repeatedly zapping away, over and over again, at nearby DNA and RNA chains, until they mutate into cancer cells.

But, they both give the same geigercounter readings, it's just that one relentlessly kills you as fast as it can, while the other, background radiation, is relatively harmless.

I haven't figured out the trick for smooth posting of links, so cut and paste this for a really good review of how the Japan plants we built and work.
