Re: Looking forward

Actually it could theoretically cause cancer. If it transfers momentum to a nucleus, that might kick the nucleus and its atom out of whatever molecule it's a part of. Which if it's just the wrong molecule might be enough to trigger cancer.

But it sounds like much less than the background radiation that you get anyway, so unlikely to be much of a problem.
