 Coulter Says Exposure to Radiation Reduces Cancer Risk

In yet another instance of the foot in the mouth disease, well known columnist Ann Coulter claimed that exposure to radiation levels well above the maximum limit set by the governments can actually reduce the risk of cancer.

Commenting on the ongoing nuclear catastrophe in Japan following the tsunami and earthquakes, Coulter wrote in her column "A Glowing Report on Radiation", saying that the only good thing that came out of the tragedy was that those who were exposed to radiation were now at a lower risk of suffering from cancer.

Coulter had appeared on the O'Reilly Factor on Thursday where she continued to claim that radiation was good for the body. The show's host, Bill O'Reilly, begged to differ, saying that common sense told us that increased radiation was bad.

"The prevailing wisdom is there's a level of radiation that's gonna hurt you and perhaps kill you. What you say may be true - there may be some doses of radiation that in the human body can ward off infection. But in something like this, you gotta get the folks out of there, and you have to report worst-case scenarios" O'Reilly said, though Coulter continued to stick with her opinion.
