Articles is behind a paywall.
They must have thought this was a pretty rad idea.
Whoever wrote this article needs a raise,
Their proposal at the end sent me :’)
seems logical that the evolution of anti-vaxxers would be anti-radiationers.
Isn’t this why we elected Ron DeSantis? So that he could simply eat the toxic waste? He’s already so toxic that it can’t possibly harm him.
Read this headline and thought….. “Oh, this is late for April’s Fool.” and then I realized it’s Florida where every day is “April’s Fool” except for real.
Couldn’t read the article. What kind of radiation are we talking about?

Florida is like that SimCity you just fuck around with when you play
Dahlings… you all look mahvalous, positively glowing after your trip to FL…
EPA approved the use of phosphogypsum for road construction in 2020, saying that the approval came at the request of The Fertilizer Institute, which advocates for the fertilizer industry. Environmentalists opposed the decision, saying that using the radioactive material in this way can pose health risks. In 2021, the EPA withdrew the rule authorizing the use of phosphogypsum in road construction. Which – if any – health risks are associated with the low doses of radiation that may result from the use of phosphogypsum in construction is hard to quantify as natural background radiation usually imparts a higher dose than those additional sources. Policy is based on the linear no threshold model and thus usually mandates to keep any avoidable dose as low as reasonably achievable. Given that the involved radionuclides are alpha emitters, whose main danger comes from incorporation (inhalation, ingestion etc.), an unsuitably stacked deposit which emits dust to the environment may actually impart a higher absorbed dose than durable construction materials that do not release dust to the environment.
