MIT Study: Prolonged Low-level Radiation Exposure Poses Little Risk

jminne Magical DNA damage testing? (142 comments)

How can they really test every cell to determine if there has been damage? A longer term study monitoring cancer rates would be more useful. I'm not saying that we shouldn't question the current guidelines, but changing them because of a short study like this would be crazy.

UK Man Prevented From Finding Chipped Pet Under Data Protection Act

jminne Re:So they can just keep stolen property then? (340 comments)

When my bicycle got stolen from my apartment courtyard in NYC I was impressed by the detective work. The surveillance camera got a fuzzy picture of the culprit and I knew the name of someone he spoke to. The police found the home of the person named, determined who the friend was, found him and arrested him. I didn't get my bike back, but hey having the guy in jail for a while is at least a deterrent.

Can Technology Fix the Health Care System?

jminne Re:Socialized medicine is here already (570 comments)

In most states homes and cars cannot be repossessed for medical debts. You just have to make a minimum payment each month($10) and the collectors are powerless.
