If radiation was a concern for flight attendants, wouldn't they all over the world be experiencing effects?

the dose of radiation everytime one flies is posted in that other thread. Add all that up. yet, there doesn't seem to be a bunch of stewardesses dying from increased radiation from flying...

the polar bear leasions have been noted since 1999... that article says. Does radiation from something in 2011 time travel?

It has already shown-up. Scary to think of motorcycles showing up on our beaches not to mention the literal tons upon ton of other items. If it is in the japanese water. It will be here as well in some form or another. The fact is that nothing good is going to come of it...

Hope you guys are right. Radiation of any kind scares the dickens out of me. W17 I agree with you on the news..... hard to trust any anymore.

Martenpine, the US Govt, is telling everyone that the airport scanners are safe too...... meanwhile other countries are banning them, because they pose a health risk. You should have seen the look on two TSA agents when I explained why I wouldnt go through one. They had no idea the machines they stand by all day are now banned in Europe.

I wonder how many people that lived before our modern, technological age died of cancer. I believe we are our own worst enemy.

Not many probably because the life expectancy was very short back then. Hard to die of cancer when you are dying of the common flu, war, starvation, and every other disease we have cures for now days.

TJ no question that our life expectancy has gone up to some degree. But most of us have relatives we can point to who lived a very long time. The problem is the cancer rates are through the roof. Sats show one person in four will get it, and we are getting it at much younger ages. I personally know 5 people right now that have it, two are under 30 and one is just two years old. The question we need to ask ourselves is why......

Look back at some old catalogs from say the 1970s or older and see how many BOYS size 13 shoes you see listed. They were rare then, but very common now. 300 plus pound heavyweights were unheard of..... hormones in our food, maybe.

My bet would be earlier and better diagnosis.

For adults maybe, but young adults and kids?

Yukon, the mortality rate from the past was ALL OVER the charts, and people had no clue what they died of. Flu, disease, war, cancer...just dead. While you can point to people in the past that lived a long time...I can point to them now. I'd bet the percentages are close to the same...its just now we can look at the dead and figure out why. I'd bet a LOT of young people died from cancer back in the day too. Shoot, the life expectancy in 1900 was 46 years old, now it's 76...that's 30 years of time to "find" something wrong (cancer)... We just make the assumption cancer is more prevalant now because we know what to look for and what it is.

I'm sure even then they cut people open out of curiousity. I would think a mass of malignant tumor would be hard to miss. Then there's the chance that it was just as prevalent, but they called it something else and didn't really understand what it was.

I agree with you alaskan, I just happen to think we are exposed to far more carcinogens, such as radiation, than people used to be.
