I don't remember ever hearing anyone saying we should close down a reactor
that is operating under the guidelines if it is being using for medical
purposes. Ditto for cancer treatment. When it is up close and personal,
they get it.
BNL's reactor on Long Island, NY, was shut down due *mostly* to antinuke/
public pressure (there were technical problems too, but not unlike CRL),
even though it was used for medical purposes -- including, in particular,
BNCT, one of only a handful of places in the US that was developing the
cancer treatment technique......
Guess it depends how many dead bodies people have to step over, to let a
reactor keep operating.
