[ RadSafe ] Uranium and genotoxicity

Regarding moles, do you have any evidence that uranium in the soil has any
effect whatsoever on a mole's survivability?  Considering everything those
creatures have to live with, primarily their place in the food chain, I
surmise that U in the soil they live in is a vanishingly small factor.

But of course, I can't prove this, so following on from how you've argued
every other point, it must mean that moles are dying from U exposure left
and right.  However, I haven't seen anything in the scientific literature
that reports a high level of birth defects among their population.

Dear Dr. Cedervall,

Your point is not valid. The fact remains that increasing exposure to
uranyl cause an increase in birth defects.  Do you deny that?

Do you wish humans to have the same survivability as moles?

Is your understanding of DNA biology and teratology what passes for
normal in the Swedish health physics community?
