      Changing the topic a bit, this, but I'm beginning to believe the cancers
      are result of some level of environmental "irritation" combined with a
      severe inhibition of the immune system and other bodily repair
      processes, an inhibition which seems to constitute a pandemic in the
      Western world, at least.

      Did you read about the professor who's just been fired for daring to
      suggest that there actually is a safe level of sun exposure, and that we
      shouldn't all spend the rest of lives living behind UV-filtering glass?

      Nuclear power plants could probably be pretty safe if run competently.
      The question is, how do you ensure such management?
