You can see where I'm going with this.

A film is shot in Utah downrange from a heavily nuked test site, and the cast of the film have unlikely rates of cancer years later: The Conqueror (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That's cause and effect, or at least a case for it. Chernobyl blows in a far more spectacular fashion than the Japanese plant, and thyroid cancer rates jump in Sweden. Again, a clear link.

This is neither of those. Stay inside and close your windows if you wish. Spend five grand on a quality Geiger counter/dosimeter if it calms your nerves. But I would say from the numbers I've seen and being able to, you know, do research, that you are more likely to be flattened by a bus on your way to Physics 'R' Us than to suffer from this "fallout".

Faux News, notwithstanding.

"good"? or just "normal"....

You can't escape some exposure if you live on earth.

Still the "experts" won't say it. They ask so many leading questions until they can finally get the reply they want.

....
Fox also wants to blame this on Obama. They want those experts to say that the administration has not done enough to address the issue.
