Government to Dispose of Radioactive Waste By Putting It In Our SILVERWARE

Washington’s Blog
Jan 29, 2013

The overwhelming scientific consensus is that any amount of radiation – no matter how small – can cause cancer and other serious health effects.

Congressman Markey writes:
A Department of Energy proposal to allow up to 14,000 metric tons of its radioactive scrap metal to be recycled into consumer products was called into question today by Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) due to concerns over public health. In a letter sent to DOE head Steven Chu, Rep. Markey expressed “grave concerns” over the potential of these metals becoming jewelry, cutlery, or other consumer products that could exceed healthy doses of radiation without any knowledge by the consumer. DOE made the proposal to rescind its earlier moratorium on radioactive scrap metal recycling in December, 2012.
