i have an actual point. specifically i have the correct point. specifically because of the two of us, one of us currently has the job of breaking down precisely this topic every day, and that person (and it is not you) reads the radiation charts, plots the collection points, and compare/contrasts it to the levels of radiation you recieve in a given day.THEN you MIGHT have an actual point.
that's perfect then. a regular chest X-Ray is about 200 u Sv. you are exposed to around 2,000 u Sv every time you take an international flight. most folks pick up 2,400 mSv in a given year (that's 2,400,000 u SV); that's your baseline. to give you an idea of how low even that number is, the current safety threshold for workers at the Fukushima plant is 2,500,000 u Sv / hour. (or 21,900,000,000 u Sv per year). they've pulled out a few guys for radiation treatment, but those guys were measuring around 1,300,000 u Sv to 1,700,000 u Sv; and the act was an abundance of caution measure.The fact is the only medical use of radiation (that I'm aware of) are x-rays
oh. a u Sv is a microsievert, which is a thousandth of a millisievert (mSv), which is a thousandth of a sievert (S) which is the equivalent of a gray(G).....
look, here, take a look at the numbers yourself: Rad Pro Calculator: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) you can have a good time plugging in the amounts found anywhere beyond a 50 mile radius from the Fukushima plant and calculating how many centuries it would take you - recieving constant exposure to that amount - to be harmed.
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) this might also help.
:pinches bridge of nose:The Canadian Press: Tiny traces of radioactive fallout reach Europe from Japan, experts say
It's already spread through to iceland.
from your link: the concentration was "less than a millionth" of what was found in European countries in the wake of the 1986 Chornobyl disaster that spewed radiation over a large distance... "We thus conclude that there is no reason to worry about radioactivity levels in Iceland, nor anywhere in Europe, resulting from the nuclear accident in Japan," said Sigurdur Emil Palsson, head of emergency preparedness....
look, this is a problem for people in Japan. personally, i think at least a couple of those reactors are probably shot, and will need cementing. but you might as well start wearing tin foil hats "just to be on the safe side" as buy iodine pills in california as a response to this.
