There is nothing alarming about measurements in the environment that 
vary from 25% to 50%.

There is no known or expected risk associated with ionizing radiation 
even in areas of the world where levels are very much higher.

The average person in the U.S.gets about the equivalent of up to 100% 
excess added to background radiation
from medical exposures each year. There is no known or expected risk 
associated with these small exposures.
