Holly:

Christianne just explained to me…..

RadNet isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. People have to go through a registration process and the Web site does not give dose. It gives a lot of highly technical information that the public would have no chance of interpreting. We had someone go to that site and email us back with the info for an interpretation…so essentially he was going around in a circle…

It also doesn’t give info about EPA’s monitoring of milk, etc.

It’s what is available – but I guess we just need to be careful about promoting it as a public friendly Web site with a lot of information that is easy to understand.

Thanks,
Amy
