Dr. Long,
  Sorry to take so much time getting back to you and your conjecture, but the NSWS did NOT report on heart disease.  Also, you are again citing a epidemiological study has been judged as being flawed.  If you need to cherry-pick data, you should at least use a credible study.
  That being said, please reply to me off list if you wish to continue this discussion.

There is a link between radiation and cardiovascular disease. See Darby et 
al (BMJ Vol. 326, pp256-257, 2003) and our poster at the IRPA-11 meeting.

"Part of human nature resents change, loves equilibrium, while another part welcomes novelty, loves the excitement of disequilibrium. There is no formula for the resolution of this tug-of-war, but it is obvious  that absolute surrender to either of them invites disaster."
