Wow! I find it totally strange that the uranium and its decay products (present
in coal), that are 'spewed forth' uncontrolledly from coal-fired power
are supposedly so benign, whereas the noble gases released controlledly (to
minimise public exposure) from a nuclear plant are claimed to cause such havoc
regarding cancer. By the way, a coal-fired station typically puts more activity
into the air than a nuclear power station and does so under all weather
conditions. There is fall-out to worry about. Ever found it necessary to
monitor the air or test people's hair downwind from a coal-fired station? And
that uranium is not even depleted. I sometimes wonder abouta Winston Churchill 
quote: "There are lies, there are damn lies, and then there are statistics".
