Nausea, vomitting, chills, crapping blood, malaise... radiation poisoning sounds alot like a the end result of a plate full of bad clams.
To the OP, I think the best suggestion in this thread is to see your doctor if you're ill. Barring that, have you tried not dwelling on the crisis
in Japan for awhile to see if you start feeling better? The brain is the body's placebo pusher. You can think yourself sick very easily,
especially if you are completely fixated on believing you have fallen victim to something like radiation poisoning.
I share peoples' concern over the effects of this radiation on America. Obviously the government's claims of how harmless it all is are completely
void of anything other than patronizing nonsense. However, I also believe that the opposite end of the spectrum is way out of line as well. I son't
believe we're going to see radiation sickness or poisoning in the States due to Fukushima. The reality lies in between these two extremes. I worry
that in 15-20 years we will see a ridiculous rise in most cancers in the US as well as a tragic rise in developmental abnormalities among babies and
Interesting personal tale. I know a guy in Seattle who I used to work with who is completely freaking out over the fallout issue. The same man
travels multiple times per month all over the country for his consulting work and I have rarely been in the same room with him for more than 10
minutes without him having to jump onto his cell phone for a business call, calls which I have seen last for well over an hour. The amount of
radiation that he subjects himself to via flying, TSA screening machines, his cell phone, and his sun lamps (not tanning, SAD lamps in his home to
conquer winter doldrums) absolutely dwarfs the amounts of radiation the West Coast has so far seen from Fukushima... yet he worries about the fallout.
I rarely will talk on my cell phone, carry it in a shielded pouch, refuse to fly, and have never used any form of sun lamp whatsoever, and won't
even use a microwave... you could say I am paranoid about radiation. Yet I am not worrying about this fallout having any sort of near term impact on
