Simply a matter of quantity. Chernobyl release was significant where normal reactor operations results in minimal I-131. Considering the number of reactor workers in the past 50 years or so, there hasn't been a correlation shown, except by the likes you mention.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Thyroid Cancers and Reactors
The question was asked "Can anyone show a cause and effect
relationship between reactor emissions and thyroid cancer? (No fair
citing Mangano, Bertell, Sternglass, etc., etc.)"
Although clearly not related to chronic emissions from emissions
under normal circumstances, a link between emissions from the
Chernobyl accident and thyroid cancers has been clearly demonstrated.
