    How in the world is United Nuclear <www.unitednuclear.com> legal? Or are things like "Ultra High Radiation Level Ore" of Uranium less dangerous than i imagine them to be?

    To my understanding uranium may put off high amounts of radiation, but not in the form that goes deeper then dead skin cells, or something like that. It has to do something with the difference between alpha, beta, and gamma radiation or something.

    *Edit* Yeah I'm pretty sure uranium that is not enriched does not put off gamma radiation. The only way uranium can be dangerous is if swallowed or breathed in somehow.


    WHAT?!

    I think it gives off a little gamma radiation, but I'm pretty sure it's nothing to worry about.

    yeah, that makes sense. alpha radiation wouldn't be a problem... thanks

    The only reason I know any of that is because I looked it up for the same reason. I found the UnitedNuclear site and wondered how the hell high radiation uranium ore could be legal haha. At first I assumed it was some illegal site or something, but I guess all of that stuff is safe enough to sell without any licenses.
    WHAT?!
