It doesn`t matter if it is just ONE Becquerel of an alpha emitter. Alpha radiation travels with 15,000 km/ per second. It does damage. Each time. And repair is only sometimes. Or it is overlooked. And then the cancer starts, with kind support of the Genetic Info Load – once altered into mailgnancy – also by radiation. So, dose limits allow “Low” doses. But no matter how small & low they are, they are FAST. And HARD. And they damage. Always. The same with Beta and Gamma. There is no threshold.
Herman J Mueller discovered in 1927 the following: ARTIFICIAL TRANSMUTATION OF THE GENE by radiation (Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1946) same story proven by Fukushima’s butterflies, remember?

There was the Geneva Summit 1955, about the “peaceful” use of nuclear energy. Mueller wanted to present his report – see the scans – BUT the AEC (Predecessor of the NRC) gave him no talk permission. http://books.google.de/books?id=JAkAAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA314&source=gbs_toc_r&cad=2#v=onepage&q&f=false

Dr. Muller’s paper contained words as “Hiroshima” and “Nagasaki” – it was banned, because of these words also. Why? They wanted to promotoe radioactive atoms as peaceful, a crazed action. There is no difference from between a martial or peaceful atom, both harm the gene in the same way. Dr. Muller was the first one who spoke against nuclear energy. He pointed out we are very vunerable during the time of mitosis = fetus / children. He said radiation damage to the genes does not stop, but increase and spread. If a “mother” gene becomes altered it copies itself through an indefinite succession of generations. Mutations arising independently of radiation like those produced by radiation are, so far as the organism is concerned, accidents, not adaptive responses. The whole organism has its basis in the genes.
“Since each generation supplies a fresh crop of those mutations, to be added to those inherited from earlier generations, it is obvious that without this negative selection the system of genes would undergo continued decay. Thus after a time it would become completely heterogeneous, disorganized, and degenerate. In the past, only natural selection has saved it. This selection makes it practically inevitable that any detrimental mutation, no matter how small its harmful effecct, will in the long run become limited by tipiing the scales against some descendant who carries it, causing his premature death or failure to reproduce.”
According to Herman J Mueller – the Father of Modern Genetics – every fifth person faces extinction per generation. This is no longer the case, because of the nuclear industry. The mixture of genes from mom and dad, the reproduction can not catch up with the damage. Genetic Mutations can cause everything, asthma, diabetes, weakness in mathematics, etc… and after many generations, if the gene / person is not “extinct” it will become such a massive “disorder” that the now resulting human is so severely affected it will die or or not able to procreate. And this is the agenda for the next 10 generations.
“We each carry a load of about four serious faults in our DNA. We are saved from fourfold incapacitation by covering most of these faults with a normal gene from our parents.”
“Radiation exposure is an inevitable side-effect of our atomic energy programs, as well as of medical X-rays and of our natural environment. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC = NRC) standards of permissible exposure (about 30 times larger than the level we experience now from atomic energy activities) would increase the natural rate of mutation about 10 percent. Over a period of generations the health costs of these additional mutations would be about $10 billion a year. This estimate and its probable uncertainty by a factor of 10 either way, needs to be factored into the economics of energy production and, more immediately, into the cost-effectiveness of the genetic research needed to plan on a basis of scientific certainty. Most of the atomic-energy related costs might even be canceled if we made sufficient efforts now to develop the countermeasures.” Government Is Most Dangerous of Genetic Engineers , Washington Post 1970 – by Joshua Lederberg – 1958 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. http://profiles.nlm.nih.gov/ps/access/BBABXZ.pdf
