One: Radioactive materials are radioactive quite a bit away from the source. Think radon from uranium (https://www.radon.com/radon_facts/
). It IS radioactive at it's source (https://www.livescience.com/39773-facts-about-uranium.html
) and it's breakdown is still dangerous and causes cancer. true: I don't have uranium under my house, but I do have higher levels of radon and have an active mitigation system in place.
Two: Yes, it can be safe(r), but the "proper" way to store waste doesn't make the surrounding area non-radioactive, it's just less radioactive.
- ran University radon measurements lab (testing and research)
- physics major
- pro-nuclear energy (until we can gather much more solar/size)
- GFW (google)
post thought: I'm not wanting to get into arguments for this as google can show the answers. Admins, please feel free to delete my post if it causes any problems as I'm honestly not trying to troll, but educate and wouldn't want to be the cause of a flame war.
