  • Trying to figure out what this 'dose' level really means.

    What is the RISK to be exposed for 1 hour at 380 uSv/hr?

    If:
    120 CPM on the meter (for Cs137) is about 1 uSv/hr (microSievert per hour).
    ['about' means approximately]

    Then:
    380 x 120cpm = 45600 cpm

    http://modernsurvivalblog.com/nuclear/radiation-geiger-counter-the-radiation-network/

    Days compared with the avg. annual human exposure (U.S.)
    207 (at 100 CPM)
    42 (at 500 CPM)
    14 (at 1,500 CPM)
    2 (at 10,000 CPM)

    Days to receive dose for increase cancer risk of 1 in a 1,000
    432 (at 100 CPM)
    86 (at 500 CPM)
    28 (at 1,500 CPM)
    4 (at 10,000 CPM)

    Days for earliest onset of radiation sickness
    25,937 (at 100 CPM)
    5,187 (at 500 CPM)
    1,729 (at 1,500 CPM)
    259 (at 10,000 CPM)

    45600 cpm –> not good!
    (approximate)

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Somehow this article seems morbidly appropriate.

    I took a tour of a cremation facility in the US, and asked about nuclear remediation of the smoke before it's vented to atmosphere.

    No, it's not. Most of us will be cremated, and our radiation will be added to the world total, just like the waste burning in Japan. Our ash will be either buried, or scattered at sea. More radiation spread.

    There is no way to not be part of the end of all life on Earth.

    Thank you, GE.

    I have not written for a long long time – been abroad for months. This so called progress is a total dehumanization, not to say insanity. I am deeply sorry for everyone living in a highly developed country. People, you do not know what is the real taste of basic foods, taste of normal spring water and normal smell of forests! Due to all the artificiql additives in food, when people die they do not desintegrate for 17 years now, while in the past it went in 5 to 8 years. Guess what will become with scintilatating dead bodies. May be the future generations will be glad to see the glowing faces of those who let all this to happen to them. Because this is the main problem – we will be in our radioactive graves, while our grand grand children will fight with the sins of today.
