Ann Coulter - A Glowing Report on Radiation

Right-wing Ann Coulter makes Bill O'Reilly look like a liberal when she claims that radiation is good for you. She is describing 'radiation hormesis', which is the hypothesis that chronic low doses of ionizing radiation is beneficial to human health. According to Wikipedia, proponents of radiation hormesis accept that high radiation levels are harmful; that intense artificial radiation, for example, is toxic. But they believe that low levels of radiation, comparable to the natural background level of radiation, are not harmful. Radiation hormesis has not been accepted by the United States National Research Council or the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements.
