Radiation exposure chart admits cancer radiotherapy delivers fatal dose to patients


  • Radiation exposure chart admits cancer radiotherapy delivers fatal dose to patients

    (NaturalNews) Thanks to the Fukushima catastrophe, we've all been learning a lot about the laws of physics lately -- especially about radiation. To help explain it all, the folks over at InformationIsBeautiful.com have created a radiation explanation chart that shows the relative levels of harm from various doses of radiation (link below).

    The InformationIsBeautiful website is pretty cool. The folks there specialize in making complex data visually interesting. I've admired some of their work for quite some time.

    So I was checking out their new "Radiation Dosage Chart" which explained all the effects of receiving radiation doses of various levels. The chart revealed things like:
    • 100 mSv Annual dose at which increased lifetime cancer risk if evident
    • 250 mSv Dose limit for US radiation workers in life-saving operations
    • 1,000 mSv Temporary radiation sickness. Nausea, low blood count. Not fatal.

    ... and so on...
