[ RadSafe ] Uranium and geotoxicity

On the other hand, perhaps everything we know, (earthworms, moles, etc.) evolved with naturally occuring Uranium, and evolved to where it is today as an adaptation to it's environment that was chock full of naturally occuring Uranium.  Perhaps, as a result of natural selection Uranium now only has a de minimus impact and that is why it's not an important radiological issue today.

I don't understand why this discussion never ends. If genotoxicity from uranium were an issue many organisms living in soil etc should show severely mutated off-spring (earthworms, moles,...) but we don't see that - there must be more important radiological problems to deal with than this speculative (anti-evolutionary) topic. Remember that having a partner means that you are dealing with a source of natural radiation.

My personal idea only,
