Radiation Plume Is Less Harmful Than A Dental X-Ray

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Charles J. Gomer, an expert in radiation and photodynamic therapies, especially those used to treat cancer, says that the radiation cloud heading toward Los Angeles tomorrow is not dangerous.  In fact, the radiation exposure we get from a dental x-ray or CT scan are far greater.  Serene Branson reports.

    A dental x-ray is a controlled, limited-time event. Any radiation that comes this way will provide constant, ongoing exposure to that same level of radiation. This is false assurance.

    Where can I find a true update on the air quality?
