Does it come through the skin? I mean, is it painful or you don't notice?

Hi levels of radiation can produce burns, but you don't 'feel' the radiation, just the effects.

it is colorless, odorless, tasteless.

Look at it this way, an alpha emitting source like the one in the pic of PU in the tissue of an ape I brought earlier, is like shooting tiny machine gun bullets at nearby cells. Some cells are destroyed and die, others are damaged but survive. Some of those might have their DNA altered that can give rise to mutations and cancer.

I got a whole hell of a lot of rads 34 years ago. On purpose. Over my whole torso.
Doing pretty good so far.

What you still refuse to mention pooping out half of what you ingest within 24hrs?

If not absorbed. The body absorbs minerals, it doesn't know the difference between normally stable cesium and radioactive cesium. That cesium may remain in your bones your entire life. The body doesn't detect radiation, just the damage it causes.


What about the process the body continues to go about slowly removing the remaining chunk of what got stored into deep tissue?

"Chunks"? See the pic of lung ape tissue, the tracks of alpha decay were collected over a forty eight hour period plenty of time to damage nearby cells. But again, the body doesn't see radioactive decay.

At least you remembered the difference between internal and external radiation sources.

Lucky you.

From outside sources? That is, from a source or sources external to your 'torso'?

Yup. A big ol' machine, it was.
Daily, for a couple of months.

Okay, twenty questions…

What kind of machine?

What it can create, it can also destroy.
Speaking of radiation, that is.

You know, I never really asked the details. But considering the timeframe, an accelerator of some sort (as opposed to cobalt or radium).

He didn't answer me, I think it was a trick question. Radiation doesn't come from 'machines', per se.

An X-ray machine isn't really a machine, neither is an atom bomb.

They are radiation sources.

Oh thanks. So far so good is right. I bathed in tri-chlor in vapor degreasers, sometime up to my elbows. Also inhaled a lot of lead solder smoke in the printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing industry.

(ahem) So far so good…

Targeted radiation therapy to kill cancer cells isn't the same thing, and you know it.

You're purposefully being obtuse.

My entire torso was irradiated. Heavily. I have suffered no long term effects. Well, that's after 34 years. Who knows what the future may bring?

The dosage I received was far greater than anything one would receive from eating the animals in the study of the OP. Would I recommend that people just lie under an accelerator beam for no reason? No. Did it cause me long term ill effects? Not that I've noticed.

Many patients of early radiation therapy were also victims.

I guess that would be me.
I should start a band.

Burns from radiation therapy?
Heart damage from radiation therapy? Are you sure?

Like I said, I got a lot of rads. Just lucky, I guess.

You said "I know people." So. No actual data. Stories.


I guess I was just lucky then.

So change the goal-post. Good job.

There's just no reason to even try with you. You're concerned about details that are irrelevant to the big-picture.
