Thanks! That is really interesting and I had been looking for some mathematical perspective on the Japan nuclear incident. My favorite comparison is probably the mammogram vs. the maximum external dose from 3 Mile Island. Ha! Not many people worry about getting a mammogram!

You're welcome!

I'm afraid of getting a mammogram.

You should be afraid because they squish your boobies, not because of the radiation, apparently.
