This certainly comes as no shock to anyone involved in Oak Ridge cleanup  If they look hard enough, they will also find contaminated deer poop.

I bet that competing risks there are: The sun (skin cancer), rattle snakes

(if you are at the wrong place at the wrong time) and perhaps another

potential eruption from Mt. Saint Helens (radioactive fallout - many Bq

but low dose...).


What was done in the best with regard to nuclear waste was probably

not the best (contamination of the Columbia river etc) - a topic that

I am sure that some other Radsafers could comment in detail (uptake

of Cs-137, Zn-65 and other radionuclides).


My personal reflections only,
