Calculated Risk?

The real problem with the nuclear industry is that the "calculated risks" have some what long term effects.
The recent furore over contaminated drinking water at a uranium omine at Beverley reminds us of this.
Accidents will happen (see here), no one denies that. However when you are the "recipient" of accidental largesse, an employer's assurance that "all will be well" (see here) requires an assurance that they have an adequate crystal ball to gaze into the future...maybe 10, maybe 20 years. And worse than that, an assurance that they can adequately tell any genetic damage that you may incur or pass on. This is a problem for most of us who do not find ourselves able to give unqualified support to this industry!!
