Yeah...  and by that same standard, X-Ray photography is also harmless, since 
it 'happens every day' in hospitals.  The thing is, it happens every day but 
not on one and the same person, but different individuals every time.
Whether something is harmful vastly depends on the exposure over time. 

If you'd take an MRI scan every day for like a month or so, you might change 
your viewpoint...
