RE: filmscanners: On dust



The risks of plutonium may be somewhat overblown - here's some resources
that, if nothing else, should help put you to sleep  ;^)

That better be polonium-210 not plutonium!  Plutonium is so dangerous
one atom is enough to cause cancer.  It is used in nuclear power plants.
  Polonium-210 (probably isn't pure, anyway) still isn't "safe" (no
ionizing radiation is) it is probably similar in danger to Americium
which is used in smoke detectors, but you don't keep a smoke detector
next to your hand hold it regularly... and the problem of discarding it
after you are done with it is a consideration as well...
