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

Faux News, notwithstanding.
