Letter: Radiation level queries

With a radioactive cloud heading to the West Coast, what exactly are the radiation levels?

With a radioactive cloud heading to the West Coast, what exactly are the radiation levels? It is stated that it will be one millionth of the level at the Japan nuclear site explosion, what does that mean? What were the original levels in the trillions of rads? What are the radiation levels that will reach us and what is a safe level comparable to what? An X-ray, CAT scan, TV screen, cell phone? And, yes it may be fine according to present information but what about low levels over time? A one time X-ray isn’t damaging, but what about over months, weeks or days? A constant barrage of radiation compared to one safe low dose incident? What are they comparable to? If we get them for months, weeks, hours or years, what will be the health effect? Will the government please tell us!

Mrs. K. Windsor, Victoria
