Japan Nuclear Reactor Radiation Fallout –Health Risks, Symptoms, Precaution and Exposure Prevention

There are many rumours and articles published regarding the possible radioactive contamination from Fukushima Japan Reactor spreading to other parts of the world. Below are my simplified and summarized findings on health risks, symptoms, precaution and exposure prevention for your easy reference. Sources of Contamination : Radiactive particles, gases, liquid and food. How Radiation Enters the Body: Absorption, inhalation and ingestion. Heath risks from Radioactive radiation exposure: Cancer, DNA mutation, Common symptoms of radioactive radiation poisoning: Nausea, vomiting, skin burns, premature aging, hair loss, death, diminished organ functionality, diarrhea, internal bleeding, unconsciousness, fatigue, decreased red and white blood cells count, destruction of bone marrow cells, High Risk Group: Radiation affects everyone but the effect on children and fetuses is more severe because their cells are growing rapidly Prevention and precaution: Limit exposure by staying indoor, clean and remove infected clothing and clean your body thoroughly, our thyroid gland cannot differentiate between normal iodine and radioactive iodine. In order to obstruct the accumulation of radioactive iodine in our thyroid glands, take potassium iodide (KI, Iostat®, ThyroBlock®) pill. Stay away from eating food that are processed or originated from the places that are contaminated with radiation. Actually no one is completely safe from radiation. Even if the radioactive cloud from Japan didn’t reach our country, there are many other sources of radiation. There is no such thing as zero radiation zones. Our earth is constantly being bombarded with cosmic rays. Lucky for us, our earth atmosphere and ozone helps to reduce the radiation level. But then, once a while, some very high energy particles do squeeze their way through these layers and bombarded earth. For those who are still very worried about radiation fall out, maybe you can ask your house renovation contractor to add this underground bunker in your compound! Free Peteformation design provided below. LOL!

Don’t worry be happy and have a nice weekend! I am going fishing tomorrow!

Wah, I like your bunker, lol! Mind if I ask for a bedroom? I don't think I'll be going upstairs to see the sunshine if the air is polluted. So might as well spend the whole time cook, eat and sleep.

Really free, ka? No copyright? Kekeke!

I think the threat from the nuclear meltdown from Japan to hit us is very slim, even it was here,i don't think it will be higher than the X ray measurement,,,,,
