Radiation killed no one

The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued its report on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. It says:

16,000 people killed in the earthquake/tsunami
3,300 missing
6 workers dead, none from radiation
8 workers received doses above legal limits, all are healthy
0 people with ill effects from radiation

Nature magazine says "A far greater health risk may come from the psychological stress". Everyone thinks that nuclear plants are dangerous, so the main danger is the stress of worrying about the danger.

Nuclear power remains the cleanest and safest large-scale energy source, and the only one that does not contribute to global warming.

I can't help feeling that Carbon-12 wins over Caesium-137 in the safety stakes.
