It is an establishment that employs residents of Morgan Co. that pays more than the prison. It's a plus

I thought they melted metals to like x-ray films which I thought contains radiation. If this is true then would this not be harmful for employees and the ppl that live around it that are breathing that mushroom ball of white,gray smoke. I also thought that steam was to come out instead of the smoke cloud. I guess we want know for sure until years later when they the damage is done and it turns out to be a leading cause of cancer like asbestous. Just a thought.

Everything around us causes cancer. Drinking too much causes cirrhosis, eating too much causes morbid obesity, & diabetes. You or I smoking is causing someone else to die of lung cancer. Driving a vehicle emits pollution. Burning things does the same thing. Driving too fast can cause wrecks...all of that stuff can kill us, but no one really cares too much. Of those few things I named everyone has done atleast one. So if you break down every little thing that screws humanity, Heraeus isn't going to be the cause of the world dying, nor is it going to be the cause of anyone around here dying. They BURN xray films into an ash, in reality the workers are the only people who will have negative effects from the plants later in life.
Justwondering, this also isn't anything directed toward you. I don't feel like debating with anyone

TO YEAH; If you did not want to debate then you should not have responded the way you did... You or no one can prove to me that Heraeus and I quote your response "Isn't going to be the cause of the world dying nor is it going to be the cause of anyone around here dying"... If they actually burn x-ray films into an ash it will NOT only be the workers who suffer... yet another contradiction on your part... So which is it? Only the workers in the plant will die or everything around us causes cancer? Whip out your Doctorate degree in Environmental Studies... You do that then I might take your words into consideration... I agree that cancer can be caused by many many things and many many things can kill us... you are completely right about that part... I responded with what I had heard and my thoughts on the subject, yes, but never once did I say or imply that it was a fact!!!

I too will not debate but check how why the plants are banned in California.
yeah

yeah

They do handle things that California will not. I never said that Heraeus was healthy for us. I was stating that other things will kill us before a single plant will

X rays only admit gamma radiation when the x ray is taken the film has silver in it and when the machine admits the gamma radiation it make the image in the film so the film is harmless hereaus takes the film and burns it down to get the silver out of it and refine it, the smoke is from the boilers that melt the film down so there now you know and yes I do have a doctorate degree in the radiation field, before you smart off!
