Hello Radsafers,

    I recently read a book called "Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity" by John Stossel of 20/20 fame. In it he makes a case for food irradiation, which was refreshing to hear from a member of the media.

 Everything was going fine until I got to the part where he states "Every year, the average U.S. citizen is exposed to natural radiation equal to about 360 dental X-rays."

Now, I'm certainly no expert on this, but that figure does seem pretty high to me. So, I'll ask the experts, (you folks), what you think. Myth or fact? I'm curious.
