BBC News – Go Figure: What bananas tell us about radiation
Amazing – you can get 1/2 a banana’s worth of radiation by ‘sleeping with someone’! I had no idea that life was so dangerous! Seriously, Michael Blastland writes very sensibly about statistics, and co-wrote The Tiger that isn’t http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2008/aug/10/politicalbooks3
He also started the Radio 4 statistics programme More or Less, which examines stories in the news where there are numbers and statistics involved.
