This BBC analysis article by Prof. David Spiegelhalter, Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk at Cambridge University puts the radiation risks from the Japanese nuclear situation into perspective. I commend it to everyone as a balanced piece of scientific reporting. Let's not lose our heads just because those around us are running about being unnecessarily demented. Let's keep a sense of perspective. And please let's put an end to all the hysteria!
