So after a tsunami -- there will be a spike in children having heart attacks? This is preposterous. In fact, it's so obviously ridiculous it does not rate a reply.
Such a spike in children is very unusual -- but given what is known about radiation it is not really surprising. Children are 1000 X more vulnerable to radiation because children are growing, hence, their DNA is undergoing rapid replication. It is well known that radiation causes damage during cell division.
I challenge Gyldenglove to present data showing such a pattern in children after tsunamis or hurricanes. MHG
