Pam- you may need to put some numbers in your article; the average American receives 620 millirem of radiation per year from natural background radiation sources- one dental exam will have a radiation dose of about 10 millirem - and as mentioned a cross country flight will yield about 4 millirem each way. McRand- Obviously TVA is monitoring since they were the ones to find and report elevated tritium concentrations. They did discover and report, and are investigating to fix the problem (as mentioned). Thank you for the heads up TFP but put some hard data out there too so that people aren't in alarm for their safety!
