Fact!

Fact or Fiction: It is a myth that nuclear war would end life on Earth through radiation, and if ALL nukes that existed at the height of the cold war were to have been detonated, the average radiation dose per person would only be 1/100th of a lethal dose (well below the dose needed to stimulate long term ill effects like cancer).
