E. Watters’ Nov. 11 letter, “Scientific fact vs. unfounded fear,” downplays the dangers of the Fukushima nuclear accident. While I agree that inaccurate reporting should not be the basis of decision making, interpretation of data is crucial for understanding truth.

Considering the amount of secrecy involved in the nuclear industry, I am skeptical of claims that no workers have died since the nuclear accident (March 11, 2011). The workers who have left their jobs might have come down with life-threatening conditions due to the amount of radiation exposure they received.
