(Newser) – Relax, folks: Radiation is actually good for you. That's the word from Ann Coulter, who insists to Bill O'Reilly that a "growing body of evidence" reveals that radiation in excess of safe maximum exposure levels set by the federal government "is actually good for you and reduce cases of cancer." She refers to a "stunning number" of unnamed physicists who back her opinion, which she expounds upon in her blog post, Glowing Report on Radiation.

"So by your account, we should all be heading for the nuclear reactor" leaking in Japan, says an incredulous O'Reilly. "Come on!" Coulter responds: "Well ..." O'Reilly pleads with Coulter to be "responsible" and admit that some radiation will "kill you," and points to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She refuses. (Read more Ann Coulter stories.)
