You are probably right. As an old hormesis afficianado, I have advocated adding 
tritium to the our drinking water so that those of us who unfortunately live in 
radiation deficient  areas can achieve optimal dose levels. For some strange 
reason, I have been unable to convince government officials of the soundness of 
this approach. Perhaps a lawsuit against HHS could be a good idea. At least, it 
might get their attention.

Hi Jerry, I believe a little 'extra ionizing radiation' has prolonged my life so 
I welcome the occasional chest x-rays, MRIs, and so on. Don't think I can sue 
though -- enjoyed smoking a pack a day until quad bypass 12 years ago, but 
progress of the emphysema has only slowed -- so I keep trying to blow their 
house in, but without success <g> Maybe we could launch a class action against 
HHS for failure to provide required radiation to treat our respiratory 
problem???? <g>
