Oh, so we still do not know exactly the quantity of real ionising radiations emitted, as the beta radiations are a consequence of uranium decay, and are less than the alpha... :-/
Well, I can't say anything more, after a general suggestion to give a look at these websites:
everybody is obviously free to act as he will. What is clear (to me) that these marbles are not really harmful by themselves, the health risk is a consequence of the total radiation that a person has absorbed due to different factors/sources; and this risky level is not a standard, but may vary from person to person.
And, as Dave says: peace :
