... monitoring system picked up higher-than-normal radiation readings overnight.

Radioactivity just happens to increase at a nuclear power plant but we're suppose to believe that it's "naturally occurring background radon".

I guess this would be good news if your name is Ann Coulter.

...the only good news is that anyone exposed to excess radiation from the nuclear power plants is now probably much less likely to get cancer. This only seems counterintuitive because of media hysteria for the past 20 years trying to convince Americans that radiation at any dose is bad. There is, however, burgeoning evidence that excess radiation operates as a sort of cancer vaccine.

The headline sounds like something out of the Onion.

Which has nothing to do with the story.

Radioactivity just happens to increase at a nuclear power plant but we're suppose to believe that it's "naturally occurring background radon".

Radon levels fluctuate all the time. They are affected by weather conditions. It is also easy to tell when it is radon because of radon's short half-life (about 30 minutes) and it's high energy alpha decay.

People can believe whatever they want. But people who believe in science and reality will have no problem believing it was a natural change in the natural level of radon.
