quite a few people in fact, quite a few. If the radioactivity level is below the limits the vets approve them for human consumption.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

Living tissue does not glow due to radioactivity.

Edit: else there would be lots of light in Southern Germany's forests as Mushrooms seem to have a predilection in gathering up radioactive isotopes.
