Radiation in CA? Whatever  
I find that I can be quite calm about whatever tiny amount of radiation makes it here to California Friday. I've had so many x-rays in my life (beginning in the early 60s) that I long since lost count. I've had several CT scans. Unless I live next door to a nuclear plant in full meltdown mode, I'm not worrying about radiation after all of that.

The one good thing about moving east from California is that I don't have to worry as much about being irradiated while pregnant...

It's not going to be anything much, trust me. It wouldn't affect anyone's baby at all.

I didn't know about that but an expert on the news said granite countertops emit radiation! I had no idea.

Radioactive fallout reaches Calif., source says
But first readings are far below levels that could pose health hazard, says diplomat with access to U.N. radiation tracking

"But it's not dangerous in any way — "about a billion times beneath levels that would be health threatening," the diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the organization does not make its findings public.

U.S. government experts also insist there's no threat to public health from the plume, but they are still closely monitoring the situation with detection monitors deployed along the West Coast."
