It is more likely from all related accidents, such as mine collapses, rig fires, equipment mishaps etc..
One single accident with a nuke plant from exposure alone has the potential to take out that many people. If their reports added the same secondary incidents for nuke plants I'm sure its numbers would come up a bit too.
Let's see what Fukushima's numbers are in 100 years just from exposure alone, direct and indirect.
