Some information on radioactivity: virtually every substance, from man-made objects you use everyday, to the earth beneath our feet, even humans, have some degree of radioisotopes present, and thus are somewhat radioactive. The difference in lethality to humans between something like Plutonium and something like ordinary rock is the amount of radioisotopes present, their half-life, and the method of their decay. I'm not taking sides, but views like: "They used to the word radioactive! It's going to kill us!" need to be put into perspective.
