  • Reporting faults and errors: Usual lack of specific numbers on radiation levels
  • Description:  Omit numbers regarding radiation levels (not a single mention of any single "unit", no sievert, no becquerel, nothing in any amount precise). Typical fluff reporting... Invisible and unit-less dangers stated without reference or data nor comparison with usual background radiation or other sources of radiation we come into contact with on a daily basis.
