Frequently Asked Questions about Radiation
http://modernsurvivalblog.com/nuclear/f ... radiation/

I recently came across an FAQ regarding several common questions that people ask about radiation, radiation dose, radiation units of measurement, radiation exposure versus contamination, and radiation treatment drugs. Given the remaining interest surrounding the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, the following information may be of interest to you.

I have excerpted some information which was sourced from the Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site (REAC/TS) at the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), who are recognized around the world for expertise in the medical management of radiation incidents. -- continued at link, above ---

INcludes:

What is radiation?
How is radiation measured?
What is the difference between radiation exposure and radioactive contamination?
What about contamination that’s inside my body?
What is KI and How does KI work?
