Also... Does anyone on here know anything about radiation detectors? how do they work? are they reliable? where can i get one and how much do they cost ect...
It would be great to have a portable device i can carry around to give me an indication of "hot zones"
The most portable devices that I've seen have been the NukAlert and RadDetect keychains (both are "authorized by DHS ODP"), but you could probably find something a little larger, and costing a bit less, if you're on a budget.

Activated Charcoal Medicinal Tips
Activated charcoal is an extremely effective remedy for nearly all poisonings ......Tylenol, Aspirin, barbiturates, chemicals, etc.. Since Charcoal binds nutrients very poorly, an iron tablet overdose will be little helped by it. Strong acid or alkali substances are also best treated by neutralizing the substance with something of the opposite ph. Common household substances would be Vinegar, which is acid, for an alkali poisoning such as lye; or Baking Soda, which is alkali, for an acid poisoning such as a hydrochloric acid poisoning. Though such poisonings are rare, when they occur, it is a great comfort to have the cure at once on hand, and the knowledge of how to administer it, without dependence on a derelict and self-serving medical community.
In addition to the wipes I have purchased Activated Charcoal. I intend to take it orally (capsule form) and also wash my body with it (granule form) followed by a lime oil and lotion mixture.
