Why its important to disprove the  stochastic theory of low level fallout;  There is an underlying assumption that low level radiation is not a toxic substance...but acts more like a digital switch which randomly (and rarely) mutates a cell that escapes the immune system, turning into cancer.  Like walking in a canyon, you are perfectly fine until a random rock falls on your head.   By applying some math, science can calculate your odds of getting hit by a rock, one in a million chance or something...and it sounds like good odds.  This concept is at the very heart of the science and ideology of the nuclear industry.  Its actually the legal reason nuclear can exist.  Scientists say a certain low probability is an acceptable price to pay for nuclear energy.  From this assumption, they look you straight in the face and say its impossible to prove that fallout caused this or that cancer or heart attack.
