I'm now on the "bizarre performance artist" side of the "Is Ann Coulter trying to be a serious political commentator or some kind of bizarre performance artist?" debate. Not that there was ever reason to think she'd count as a serious political commentator in any well-functioning community, but I'd wondered how she thought of herself. When someone comes out and argues in an article
and on TV
that "radiation is good for you", so people in Japan will be okay, that kind of helps you answer the question.
God I hate Ann Coulter, but here I go... As crazy as this sounds, I did a bit of reading on the topic a while ago, and slightly increased rates of radiation do seem to help prevent cancer. But obviously larger doses do not. I believe the principle is hormesis, namely that a bit of damage triggers the body's repair system, which ends up making things stronger. Sort of like how bones that have been broken are usually stronger (in younger people).
Yeah, I can see something like that being right, but the inference to "people in Japan will be okay" is unwarranted, especially before we know what's going to happen with the big nuclear reactors.
Well, yes, "people in japan will be okay" is clearly insane. Phew, I still get to call Coulter insane...
These people are clueless svch as Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck both New Canaanites who judge the poor so harshly. Easy to do when your super wealthy. I'm from Fairfield County and life's tough here if your not rich. Doesn't surprise me she would have crazy comments. Deborah Jeffries
Just another ploy for bourgeoisie Coulter to sell books! Deborah Jeffries
