Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not talking about the long run. I'm talking about it taking years or decades for the excess cancer incidence from elevated background radiation to be detectable. But those people are killed just as dead as the ones who get caught in a gas explosion.

Besides, the focus on radiation leaves out the fact that a lot of the longer-lived radioactive crap is also chemically toxic and very expensive to get out of your soil.
