There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding and misconceeptions about radiation and how to protect onesself from it and its effects. I have worked with Ionizing radiation sources in industry and can share some knowledge which may help some folks to better understand the subject.... here goes....

There are different forms of radiation, the one we are concerned with is IONIZING RADIATION.
IR comes from X-Rays and Gamma Rays
X-Rays are produced by a machine (X-Ray tube)
Gamma rays are emmitted from a decaying radioactive source
IR travels in straight lines
IR can penetrate matter
Gamma rays are more damaging to Humans than X-Rays
IR passes straight through the human body and cannot be felt by any of the senses
The passage of IR through the human body causes mutations in a persons DNA (amongst other effects)
The effective preventative measures against IR are Shielding, Distance and Time IR obeys the inverse square law - that is to say, if you double the distance between your body and the source, the level of IR will be quartered.
You can sheild your body by placing a solid barrier between yourself and the source.
You can minimize damage to your body by reducing exposure time to a minimum.
thick Lead sheeting is an effective shield against IR
Inch for Inch, Concrete is about one tenth as effective as lead at sheilding your body from IR
7.5 microsieverts/hour is an acceptable background level for humans
Your body receives a dose when exposed to an unshielded source - once the source is shielded, the radiation stops, you have received a dose but you are not contaminated and you cannot pass it on to another person.
Radioactive contamination is carried by smoke and soot particles and this is what you definately do not want to breathe into your lungs.
This is why we see people in contamination suits being scrubbed down with soapy water and brushes - it is to get rid of the soot and therefore the radiation.
You can buy a second hand Geiger Muller counter from an army surplus store fairly cheap.
Every neighbourhood should have one.
I am by no means an expert on the subject but my work has made me understand IR more than most and I will be happy to try to answer any questions or discuss further.

PEACE,

Thanks and with the information you just shared, would it be safe to say then that;
Soot and debris from the problem in Japan that has become airborne and is currently aloft and following the wind currents and jetstream will be caught in rain and storms and 'washed' down into the sea?
Do you happen to know of any 3rd party monitoring sites globally that can be referred to for updated data?
Thanks

Your post is well intended but contains a number of incorrect statements.

IR comes from X-Rays and Gamma Rays


The are also alpha, beta and even neutrons. Alpha and beta WILL be present in decay productsion found in reactors and such.


X-Rays are produced by a machine (X-Ray tube)


Not true, there are many processes that lead to creation of X-rays.


Gamma rays are emmitted from a decaying radioactive source


Again not true, there is more than one way to make a gamma.


IR travels in straight lines


Technically not true as alpha and beta rays will bend in a magnetic field.


Gamma rays are more damaging to Humans than X-Rays


That would depend on the dosage, so statement is irrelevant.


IR passes straight through the human body and cannot be felt by any of the senses


Not true on many levels. Alphas will be stopped in your skin or mucus membrane, beta will get stuck somewhere inside your body and large doses can be felt in severe accidents and as light flashes detected by your retina, such as what astronauts observe.


You can sheild your body by placing a solid barrier between yourself and the source.


Won't work well with many neutron sources.

There is also Neutron, Alpha, and Beta radiation.

Neutron radiation is the most deadly but unless you are physically at the nuclear plants you will not have to worry about it. The only way to protect yourself from Neutrons is distance.

Alpha and Beta are particulate radiation. you can protect yourself with shielding, and distance. just keep your skin covered and where a dust mask if you believe you are in a contaminated area.

Radiation fun fact: if you believe you have ingested particulate radiation you can drink copious amounts of beer and it will help your body flush it out of your system much quicker.

The main thing to understand, IMHO, is the material is a heavy metal and those metals do not hop around like Hydrogen gas would, comparing apples to oranges. The will go up in a plume. But the plumes I saw were small and not blasting stuff upwards of 10's of thousands of feet like a Volcano. With such vast ocean between there and here, Japan is the place that is in trouble. If the wind were to shift to Russia then parts of there could get some exposure to gamma. Tokyo might have huge portions that will be unlivable without a thorough cleanup. They already do it appears.

BTW,They will use something called a Roentgen meter, which is the thing we think of as a Geiger counter.

Yes you have nailed it,
The soot cloud contains the "fallout" from a reactor fire and this can travel great distances before coming back to Earth. After Chernobyl there was a lot of fallout which drifted over to the UK and contaminated sheep pastures in Wales and North England. I do not know of any World-radiation monitoring stations

There are different forms of radiation, the one we are concerned with is IONIZING RADIATION.
IR comes from X-Rays and Gamma Rays

And Alpha & Beta (electron and positron), and neutron emissions.

X-Rays are produced by a machine (X-Ray tube)

generally speaking.

Gamma rays are emmitted from a decaying radioactive source

... and nuclear fusion and other relativistic processes.

However, though it's now generally accepted that x-rays can be emitted by electrons while gamma rays are emitted by the nuclei, people will argue and profess.


IR travels in straight lines
IR can penetrate matter

And different types of IR penetrate matter to different depths.
i.e.: a comparable exposure time to

Gamma rays are more damaging to Humans than X-Rays

Whereas the comparable exposure time to beta or alpha particles, which are IR, may produce negligible damage, if any at all.

IR passes straight through the human body and cannot be felt by any of the senses

Unless it's of a high level... UV is IR too, and you can feel sunburn though UV doesn't pass through you.

The passage of IR through the human body causes mutations in a persons DNA (amongst other effects)
The effective preventative measures against IR are Shielding, Distance and Time IR obeys the inverse square law - that is to say, if you double the distance between your body and the source, the level of IR will be quartered.

Okay....

You can sheild your body by placing a solid barrier between yourself and the source.

Works for alpha, limited beta and some neutron exposure... but not so well against x and gamma ray....

You can minimize damage to your body by reducing exposure time to a minimum.
thick Lead sheeting is an effective shield against IR

to an extent

Inch for Inch, Concrete is about one tenth as effective as lead at sheilding your body from IR
7.5 microsieverts/hour is an acceptable background level for humans
Your body receives a dose when exposed to an unshielded source - once the source is shielded, the radiation stops, you have received a dose but you are not contaminated and you cannot pass it on to another person.

Unless it's alpha / beta / neutron radiation acting on your exposed surface(s)

Radioactive contamination is carried by smoke and soot particles and this is what you definately do not want to breathe into your lungs.

You mean those alpha, beta and neutron particles, right?

This is why we see people in contamination suits being scrubbed down with soapy water and brushes - it is to get rid of the soot and therefore the radiation.

Thanks for your contribution but you miss my point.
I am specifically talking about Gamma and X-rays here - forget alpha, neutron and Beta
on Earth, Man made X Rays come from a cathode ray tube.
Gamma and X-Rays travel in straight lines
Gamma radiation is a function of radioactive decay of an isotope
Dose for dose, Gamma Rays will do more harm to the human body than X-Rays.
You question my statements but provide little explanation for doing so,
there is a name for that.

And most of the radiation from a meltdown would be limited to:
1) Neutron emissions within the immediate the vicinity of the reactor; consideration for intermediate structures
2) Gamma and X-ray radiation within the immediate vicinity of the core, with considerations as with Neutrons, potentially extending moderate distances from the core.
3) Beta particle radiation within moderate to distant radii; heightened regard given to wind conditions.
4) Alpha particles as well as beta particles at extended distances from the core; consideration for any aerosolized or vaporized radionucleotides capable of spurious neutron, gamma and x-ray emissions. The latter would be heavier and tend to fall to earth more quickly, and likely would not gain sufficient altitude to be carried by prevailing winds / jet stream conditions.

But you introduce your own definition of Ionizing Radiation then, why do you want to confuse people who know even less than you?


on Earth, Man made X Rays come from a cathode ray tube.


They also emanate from certain radioactive elements as well as X-ray lasers.


Gamma radiation is a function of radioactive decay of an isotope


Gamma radiation is not a "function" but a product of a decay, and may come from other and different processes such as Bremsstrahlung.


You question my statements but provide little explanation for doing so


I stated that I wanted to correct your incorrect statements, what's your point? What other explanation do you need?

Indeed, it's called knowledge.

Have a read of this..

nuclearweaponarchive.org...



It's part of a site that deals primarily in nuclear weapons, but there is an excellent description of different types of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, causes and effects and so on in the above link.

The whole site is worth a read if you're interested in that kind of thing, come to mention it...

And also this section.

nuclearweaponarchive.org...

I find it a little silly/ hysterical (under the circumstances) that people are having a panic attack over stray "clouds" that could make a beeline straight for the US and "kill us all" when the fact of the matter is that many/ most of us have been (even indirectly through our parents' DNA) irradiated all to h.e.ll. for the last 6+ decades (all of our lives) and it's ongoing.

This fascination held by the "scientific community", the weapons and the "medical" industries has been sickening and killing people all this time and will most likely continue. There is no such thing as "safe" radioactivity, period. (see also: the "precautions" they take handling it themselves)
Sooner or later, the horror is going to come out. If you believe that those who control the situation give a flip about "collateral damage" like us, please wake up. We're just more guinea pigs for them to play with to "see what happens if".
Why didn't we stand up after 3 Mile Island, after any of the cancer clusters, or after Chernobyl? The horse was long gone out of the barn then and God Knows how many reactors (the very ones we're worrying over now perchance?) worse.

Why didn't you stand up to close ALL coal-fired power plants, which release much larger quantities of radioactive ash into the sky than all nuclear plants combined? In addition to mercury which poisons fish and people worldwide. Why didn't you stand up to close all chemical industry after the likes of Bhopal incident because you know, there is no such thing as a safe chemical plant? Why didn't you stand up to stop all air traffic because you know, sometimes planes do crash and kill lots of people? Indeed, how about we relocate back to the caves we came from?

Some people...

Well, that's a leap.
We aren't talking about coal or chemical plants in this thread- or airline traffic, for that matter. Are you saying that these are similar by way of our ability to *control* those processes? I'm not arguing your point that all of these have the potential to be detrimental to the environment, but when they go haywire, it is normally the result of failure; often by way of corruption. They haven't got the potential to get out of control the way radioactive material does and the effects don't last tens of 1000s of years.
You bring up a good point (I suspect without meaning to) in that chemicals (and petroleum) have found their way into "medicine" and other common aspects of our lives where they never should have been and also cause ongoing harm (Monsanto comes to mind, destroying our food supply. And plastics). Still, they are, so far, manageable IF they are controlled. Well, maybe not GM.

How do you know I haven't? I have raised hell over Alcoa and Dow in Texas, both, the Navy's proposed war games field near Port Mansfield using DU weaponry, and BP drilling *on* the National Seashore. BP drilling in the US at all!
But I am not a "greenie". Kindly don't mistake me for one.

My humble opinion is that your post is off topic, Buddha. And now, so is my reply.

I'm copy & pasting an email from Len Horrowiz (am on his mailing list). I've deleted a section where branded products are named, because I don't want to be percieved as a sales assistant or anything like that.

For anyone who's not familiar with this man, he's the one who proved the strain of anthrax distributed after 9/11, was not, in fact, down to terrorists as portrayed (to incite further fear & hatred & justify increased infringments of liberty), but was actually manufactured within a USA bio-lab! And that's why I believe he's worth listening to.

How to Protect Against Radiation Exposure

The unfolding events relating to Japan's damaged nuclear reactors is raising the concern in the U.S. of a worst-case scenario of multiple meltdowns with a consequent cloud of radioactive particles following the jet stream over to the U.S. The prevailing jet stream winds will impact Los Angeles to Alaska, and will include Hawaii. Radioactive pollution will reach the U.S. within 36 hours. It will then travel the typical jet stream across the U.S. that you see on your daily weather programs.

A coordinated cover-up of the severity of the situation is underway. This sort of behavior is typical of governments, especially when they are interested in protecting their power base and protecting the interests of transnational corporations.

Japanese health authorities are passing out iodine tablets to those in the vicinity of these reactors -- as it is common knowledge that the thyroid gland is a weak spot when it comes to radiation exposure. By flooding the body with iodine it is taken up by the thyroid which then blocks radiation uptake into the thyroid, reducing the risk for future thyroid cancer (which is already an epidemic form of cancer in the U.S. in part likely due to excess CT scans).

Such iodine saturation should occur 24 hours prior to exposure and be maintained during the duration of excess exposure. This solution is not without risks, especially when potassium iodide is used. That is because excess iodine can clog thyroid function, inducing either hypo or hyper thyroid. However, that risk is trivial compared to acute radiation exposure -- thus iodine makes sense. We like water-soluble iodine that in our experience is much less problematic when higher doses are used. Liquids can be applied transdermally, directly over the neck region or taken orally, and reapplied as desired based on concerns.

Protecting the thyroid with iodine seems to be about all public health officials are willing to recommend to the public. However, there are other important steps every person should consider. Radiation interaction within your body generates massive amounts of damaging free radicals, in turn potentially inducing DNA damage that may lead to future cancer -- often manifesting a decade or two later. This means it is a good idea to maximize your overall antioxidant defenses. Ideally, this system of defense should be bolstered in advance to provide maximal defense. Unfortunately the antioxidant defense systems of a majority of Americans are in shoddy condition.

Many nutrients contain antioxidants and many of these behave in your vital antioxidant network to protect your DNA from damage. In your diet these nutrients come from fruits, vegetables, whey protein, and whole grains. Additionally, almost any nutrient supplement with antioxidant properties, such as vitamin C, will help bolster your antioxidant team. We suggest that everyone consume a broad spectrum of antioxidant support as the minimum. Indeed, a cocktail of antioxidants (selenium, vitamin C, N-acetyl cysteine, alpha-lipoic acid, alpha-tocopherol succinate, and co-enzyme Q10) started 24 hours after a lethal level of radiation exposure has been shown to be highly protective.

There are three specific nutrients that have science showing they can protect your body against radiation damage: tocotrienols, antioxidants from berries, and lipoic acid.

Tocotrienols are a unique form of vitamin E that offers protection that regular vitamin E does not. In a recent animal experiment carried out by the U.S. Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute it was shown that gamma tocotrienol can protect against whole body radiation exposure.

Excessive radiation exposure damages DNA, especially DNA relating to the system in our bone marrow that produces all the red and white blood cells that are vital for survival. Therefore radiation exposure has adverse consequences on circulatory health and immune system competence, disturbing energy balance and increasing the risk for cancer. Of particular importance are the hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) that constantly rejuvenate blood and can become any of the white or red blood cells, as well as the hematopoietic progenator cells (HPCs) that transform into specific blood cells. Both HSCs and HPCs are the life force of blood cell rejuvenation and essential to your good health.

Stem cell colonies (HSCs) are 80% - 86% maintained in gamma tocotrienol-treated mice, while they were 50% reduced in controls. Similarly, progenator cells (HPCs) have recovered completely within 7 days in gamma tocotrienol treated mice, while they remained at 30% for weeks in the controls.

A detailed analysis of the bone marrow showed that gamma tocotrienol maintained the regenerative integrity of bone marrow cells. Gamma tocotrienol protects hematopoietic tissue by preserving the HSCs and HPCs and by preventing persistent DNA damage.

Another recent animal study shows that gamma tocotrienol can offset the adverse effects of radiation exposure, including the reduction of peroxynitrite, the most damaging free radical. This is important because as free radicals begin forming their reactions can cascade into producing large amounts of the most damaging of all free radicals, peroxynitrite. Short-circuiting peroxynitrite formation in response to radiation exposure is of immense importance to protecting DNA.

Lipoic acid is a very small and versatile fat- and water-soluble antioxidant. Animal studies show that it helps maintain the antioxidant defense system in multiple body tissues upon radiation exposure, especially protecting the brain, liver, spleen, kidney, and testes.

The health status of some 6,000 workers from Latvia who went to clean-up the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant has been followed for several decades. These workers suffered higher-than-normal rates of problems in their nervous, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine system (especially thyroid) and immunological systems. A study conducted on some of these workers 10 years after the fact showed that 600 mg of lipoic acid for two months was able to normalize many, but not all, of their lab abnormalities. Too bad they didn't have protection prior to and during exposure. Pretreatment with lipoic acid has been shown to significantly reduce radiation exposure damage to the brain.

Recent animal research conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture showed that blueberry and strawberry extracts helped prevent brain damage from radiation exposure. Interestingly, the polyphenols of each fruit protected different areas of the brain -- supporting a variety of dietary berry intake and/or supplements with multiple berries. Having an adequate antioxidant defense system for more optimal health is common sense. During times of increased stress your needs for antioxidants rise -- and this relates to any type of stress. Radiation exposure is simply one more type of stress -- a rather nasty type. The demands in your life or existing health concerns may already be testing your antioxidant bank account. Bolstering your antioxidant defense system to compensate for a potential challenge is common sense.

If you have been exposed to too many X-rays or CAT scans, if you fly too much, work with diagnostic medical equipment or are environmentally sensitive and have ingested elevated levels of radioactive contaminated food, air or water, you also want to partake of the following protocol on a regular basis


Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)

The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys. The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure. Old military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate complex. So useful and strong is sodium bicarbonate that at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, researcher Don York has used baking soda to clean soil contaminated with uranium. Sodium bicarbonate binds with uranium, separating it from the dirt; so far, York has removed as much as 92 percent of the uranium from contaminated soil samples. The United States Army recommends the use of bicarbona te to protect the kidneys from radiation damage.

Sodium bicarbonate can safely remove paint, grease, oil and smoke residue, decreasing workers' exposure to harsh chemicals and eliminating much of the hazardous waste associated with other cleaners. "Sodium bicarbonate is able to clean in areas where other substances pose fire hazards, because baking soda is a natural fire extinguisher," says Kenneth Colbert, a general manager for Arm & Hammer. This is the reason it's used by oncology centers to control chemo agent spills and it's actually used intravenously to protect patients from the hazardous toxicity of chemotherapy.

Uranium is one of the only metals that get significant bonding from carbonate. Just flushing a lot of bicarbonate through the system, along with whatever kidney support you are going to use, will be very helpful. There is no better therapy for radiation sickness then intense sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and magnesium baths with the appropriate clay added in. Even sodium thiosulfate can be added to these baths and that instantly neutralizes any chlorine in the bath water while simultaneously providing sulfur for the vital sulfur pathways.


Bicarbonate and Nuclear Fallout

If the bombs start dropping anywhere on earth, or if you live near a nuclear plant, you will want to have a large amount of sodium bicarbonate on hand. Minimum stocks should be 25 or 50 pounds. Normally we recommend someone start with using one pound of bicarbonate in a bath but that could easily be two or three pounds in an emergency situation. You will also need a lot of magnesium salts and the very best and most penetrating of them is the magnesium chloride in the form of magnesium bath flakes. Dead Sea salt is also fine for this application because it is high in magnesium.

Exposure to radiation causes a cascade of free radicals that wreak havoc on the body. Radiation decimates the body's supply of glutathione. Nebulization is one of the best ways to quickly increase glutathione levels as is the use of glutathione rectal suppositories. The main cancer risk from inhaled uranium oxide and other airborne radioactive particles is from tiny insoluble particles lodged deep in the lungs. That's a good reason to nebulize both glutathione and bicarbonate directly into the lungs and one must wonder why governments and health officials haven't sponsored this.

Uranium oxide can be inhaled by soldiers and civilians, it sticks to the lining of the lungs, it is taken up by cells of the immune systems and gets into lymph glands, bone, brain, hormone producing glands, ovaries and testes. It stays in these organs for many decades and is only very slowly excreted in urine. Nebulization topically treats the lung tissues allowing for best effect on contaminated lung tissues.

The scientist with the greatest genius, especially when it comes to mercury chelation, is Dr. Chris Shade. He has developed a sophisticated detoxification system based on enhancing the natural removal of metals through the intestines. Though his specialty is mercury, detoxification and chelation of radioactive poisons use the same pathways as mercury. He has developed three products that are effective for the removal of mercury including a liposome formula that allows us to get glutathione into the system via oral administration.

Combining his formulas with chlorella powder gives the best possible medical formula to help remove radioactive contamination as long as iodine, magnesium chloride, a super-food, spirulina-based powerful chlorophyll-rich formula that is easy to administer in high quantities because of its exceptionally pleasant taste, and edible clay are used as well. The intense levels of will quickly help build up a person's immune system and help them recover from the RNA/DNA damage caused by radiation exposure.

Uranium-238 is being eliminated in the hair using heavy metal detox protocols; to date there is no natural chelating agent known to mobilize and eliminate uranium-238 from body tissues.

Cilantro will move heavy metals and radioactive material out of the brain cells into the detoxification pathways with rectal suppositories of Detoxamin working on the liver's glutathione pathway to get the material out through the intestines. The internal consumption of edible clay and external clays dramatically facilitate this process. Zeolite clay baths are a very effective way of removing heavy metals from the body and increase one's chances of survival if exposed to nuclear fallout. Also activated charcoal powder in water will bind these toxins and pass them out of the body.


Iodine

Iodine is the most obvious and important element in protecting against radiation damages. Radioactive iodine will plunge into any and all iodine receptor cites that have no iodine in them due to iodine deficiencies. This is a serious problem because over 90 percent of people in North America are iodine deficient. This leaves them incredibly vulnerable to radioactive iodine, which is one of the principle forms of radiation given off in nuclear accidents and from nuclear weapons.


Intravenous Cocktails

In cases of serious exposure, IV cocktails with high dosages of vitamin C, magnesium chloride or sulfate, sodium bicarbonate and very pure seawater full of all the minerals necessary for life would be ideal. Dr. David Brownstein administers a slow IV vitamin C drip--usually 25-50 gm, with minerals, and he adds 10cc of sodium bicarbonate.

The addition of bicarb to the IVs made a huge clinical improvement.


Nutrients to the Rescue

Spirulina and chlorella have been used heavily by the Russians after the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster. And the Japanese love their miso soup and that was said to help some of their citizens survive the fallout after the Americans attacked two of their cities. We recommend a green powder in high doses that is high spirulina and chlorella content because it is like rocket fuel for the cells, providing them with a broad range of concentrated nutrients.

Miso is effective for detoxifying your body of radiation. During World War II, two hospitals that were located side by side were hit with atomic radiation, in one hospital people consumed Miso and all of them survived while many people in the other hospital that did not take miso died. Miso is rich in vitamin B12 therefore it is suitable for vegetarians who are in shortage of vitamin B12. For best results do not cook miso.

There are a number of foods that can better help our bodies tolerate the effects of pollution. Eating lower on the food chain minimizes our chemical intake. Consuming more whole grains has a multitude of benefits, unless you are intolerant to certain grains. Their high fiber content binds with toxins and lessens intestinal transit time. Their vitamin B6 content nourishes the thymus gland and their vitamin E content helps the body to better utilize oxygen. The grain buckwheat is high in rutin and helps to protect against radiation and stimulates new bone marrow production. The mucilaginous fiber in seaweed helps to prevent the reabsorbing of radioactive strontium 90.

Following the bombing of Nagasaki, a group of surviving macrobiotic doctors and their patients avoided radiation sickness by eating brown rice, miso and seaweed. They also did not get leukemia. Seaweeds also help to break down fatty deposits. High-chlorophyll foods like wheatgrass, barley grass, kale, collard greens, beet greens, swiss chard, etc. strengthen cells, transport oxygen, help to detoxify the blood and liver as well as help to neutralize polluting elements and stimulate RNA production. Sulfur-rich vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and mustard greens, as well as garlic, combine with heavy metals and help prevent free radical damage.

The sulfur compounds trigger increased expression of your glutathione system, which results in both metal detoxification and free radical neutralization. The other group of food compounds that do this is the polyphenolic antioxidants -- pine bark extract, green tea extract, grape seed extract, and Haritaki or terminalia chebula, an Ayurvedic fruit that is the basis for many medicines including the intestinal detoxifier Triphala. This fruit is used extensively in Tibetan Medicine where it is called the "King of Herbs." It has potent effects on the glutathione system and on expression of other intracellular antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD).

Research on animals indicates that curcumin (an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound found in the curry spice turmeric) may help protect against radiation-induced damage to the skin. Other research in animals shows that the herb ginkgo biloba may help shield against organ damage resulting from radiation therapy. And aloe vera is a natural remedy for radiation-induced skin changes preventing or minimizing radiation-induced skin reactions.

There is always a smart arse who will try to find fault in anything and turn it into a pissing competition (not a dig at you). I specifically limited this thread to X and Gamma rays cos that is what I have experience with...
just not good enough for some though....

PEACE,
RK
