Sanjay Gupta, "Even if you were to eat this radioactive spinach every day, the amount of radiation you'd get over a year of doing this would be about equivalent to one CT scan."

    What happens if other nuclear plants ever get cracked somewhere else on Earth? I thought only nuclear wars would make the Earth uninhabitable.

    I'm not sure you can say that taking in the amount of one CT scan of radiation a year is not going to affect human health. After all, aren't cell phones, popcorn and air all supposed to give you cancer?

    But, seeing as the food is all going to be scanned for radiation for the foreseeable future, I'm not overly panicked or concerned.

    I like radiation of things. Especially of microwaves on my hot pockets.

    It's not that I don't know and don't care, it's more that I'm ignorant and apathetic.
