do people that work in nuclear power plants recieve high levels of radiation?



  1. 0 Votes

    According to a 2007 study by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, nuclear plant workers received 520 millirems of radiation per year, as opposed to the 360 millirems received by an average American. NRC regulations allow a worker to receive up to 5,000 millirems each year. It appears that this level of dosage is safe, although the more radiation one receives over long periods of time, the more likely cancerous abnormalities are to appear.
