Radiation is really just high-powered particles or energy. When something like that smashes into your DNA or most anythingit is definitely going to do some damage. Luckily, our cells are very good at repairing the damage so it takes a lot of radiation to do permanent harm.
I like the green color and photosynthesis theory. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too.
John Tjostem e Discover article was in general supportive of low dose radiation. It was not well researched. The biological mechanism for the hormetic effect which is a multifaceted adaptive immune response was not developed.
Also there are convincing human studies year radiologists study, the shipyard study, the chemical explosion in the eastern Urals that vaporized a tank of radioactive material, the Cobalt 60 in the Taiwan apartments, and the watch dial painters all present a strong case for the benefits of low to medium dose radiation.
It just that the radiation-medical-military-federal-industrial cartel has long corrupted the raw databases derived from Hiroshima, Nagasaki, etc.
Example, the proven fact is that the lowest possible dose of ionizing radiation is carcinogenic and that the corrupt corporate cartel is responsible for the death of millions of innocent and unwitting people. Hormesis is an ambiguous notion that typically gets seriously distorted and is often wrongly applied to all kinds of things.
Clearly he has a shallow sense of understanding of the matter, thus disseminating the popular ideology of the corporate culture. D he proven fact is that the lowest possible dose of ionizing radiation is carcinogenic and that the corrupt corporate cartel is responsible for the death of millions of innocent and unwitting people.
There is ZERO epidemiological evidence that low dose radiation is harmful. Probably worried the radiation-medical-military-federal-industrial cartel will get him for telling the truth. Radiation makes people stop smoking.
Kapricorn4 I read somewhere that tobacco smoke contains radioactive metal particles is what causes lung cancer.
Some of the studies were showing the paradoxical result that people were getting a benefit from low doses of radiation. That memory is consistent with your graph. Government media suppression at its best. But I think you are right.
People thought radon gas did its damage by being inhaled. The more general point is that the regulators adopted the view that if 10 rads causes cancer, then 0.
This appears to hold for radiation and some microbes. I doubt it holds for everything. Tobacco is a Magickal Plant: James, yeah… I was following it.
It was the EPA. The Report they did was so bad that it was actually thrown out by a federal judge! To add to the regulatory nightmare, we have two agencies to look into such matters.The Effects of Radiation on DNA Mutations by Sylvie Tremblay, MSc ; Updated August 14, the millions of resulting DNA breakages result in the development of genetic mutations that can result in cancer.
Wearing sunscreen or sunblock protects the skin from UVB radation. UV Radiation; MIT News: Chromosome translocation studies shed light on. Ultraviolet radiation, that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum extending from the violet, or short-wavelength, end of the visible light range to the X-ray region.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is undetectable by the human eye, although, when it falls on certain materials, it may cause them to fluoresce—i.e., emit electromagnetic radiation of lower energy, such as visible light.
There is ample research on nonionizing, nonthermal wireless radiation showing health effects. Please see the BioInitiative report (), Pathophysiology Issue on EMFs (Aug ), and the Environmental Reviews () article by Levitt/Lai to get an idea of the volume of scientific research which has been done on the topic of wireless radiation and health.
Yet UV radiation at different wavelengths differs in its effects, and we have to live with the harmful effects as well as the helpful ones. Radiation at the longer UV wavelengths of nm, called UV-A, plays a helpful and essential role in formation of Vitamin D by the skin, and plays a harmful role in that it causes sunburn on human skin.
the dangers of emf radiation and what we can do to improve our health in today’s polluted world. can radiation from all electrical wiring, equipment, power lines, substations and even battery operated items affect our biophysical and biological bodies, damage, alter our dna and lead to illness and disease?
These instructions are written in a language called the genetic code.
It's an easy language to learn because it has only four letters: A, C, G and T. UV radiation in sunlight can damage your DNA by messing up the base pairing.
UV light will often make two T's that are next to each other stick together making something called a dimer.
