Of course this is a valid point - not only with radiation from the uranium series but also with radiation from K-40, chemical stress from higher temperature and other factors.

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. Roy Herren
