18/ The NRC explains this by assuring us that "Life-threatening radiation doses would generally not occur" beyond ten miles. But this ten-mile limitation is meaningless

19/ cancer is caused by doses as low as 5 REM,
SEE: "NRC NEWS", US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, March 16, 2011

20/ Both predict radiation dose levels to the thyroid that could reach 100 times "safe" levels among exposed individuals at 50 miles from the release. And both predict that dangerous levels could be seen for 200 miles downwind
