Geiger Counter?

Recommended Posts

there are some basics here https://ehs.iupui.edu/doc/rad/RST%20-%20geiger%20counters%205-00.pdf

 

A bit more but not really explicit http://www.geigercounters.com/DangerLevels

 

Here is a good reference in a spread sheet format  https://app.box.com/shared/o8nt22rh2i

 

    1 Sievert (Sv) = 100 Rems

    1 Rem = 0.01 Sv

    1 milliSievert (mSv) = 100 milliRems (mRem)

    1 microSievert (uSv) = 100 microRems (uRem)

    1 milliRem = 0.01 milliSievert

 

The one issue is that most numbers are subjective it is an assumption that a person can survive X exposure for X time but reality is each human is effected differently male female children infants the elderly all are differing exposure rates and end results and in what time frame BUT the higher the exposure and the type as to how dangerous it is 

 

here is a good bit of information

OSHA information location https://www.osha.gov/dte/library/materials_library.html#radiation

 

somewhat of a guide chart

We are exposed to some form of radiation every moment but as best as I could attempt to describe it is much like shotgun pellets the closer the more the further the less only some has more ability to penetrate and damage DNA. then there is the bodies ability to regenerate if the damage is too severe well you get that I am sure probably TMI but there it is.

 

So concentration and proximity is very important then you hear if a planet goes super nova it expels gamma radiation and if our planet is in the direction even from many light years away it would become a burned out cinder.

 

Fukashima has made me more watchful of food earth maps overlaid with wind chart / jet stream appears to show an ever increasing amount of "dust" as of now it is mostly in the northern portion and the totality of the west coast but that is not telling us the density of the material and I doubt we would be told even if there was a problem.

daily a sample is pulled for "air quality"  here is where we find the amounts of pollen and dust etc if you take a coffee filter and a aquarium pump into a jar to pull air through the filter taped over the top  the tube need to be out of the jar so the air sucked through the filter is expelled out of the jar.  and then test you would have a sense of what is in your area if anything.  now here is a fun fact let us say that a speck falls here and is inhaled that person would eventually succumb to effects where that speck stuck to, it may take months or years even decades depending on material

 

research the unit and see if it has a range meter or if you get instructions and FAQs from their site.

 

Since Fukashima the powers that be have been moving the goal posts before the exposure rates were less now it is more and TEPCO by my understanding has moved them up more than once but the containment area has remained unchanged and people and farm animals living in the zone are showing signs

I think / hope to shed some light on this subject my problem is I am a novice / work related need to know stuff I know it is a fact that radiation is dangerous even extremely deadly problem is scientists want to cloak it in ambiguity or make it so the lay person is not able to fully or partially get a handle on the information or find good sources of empirical data. 

 

Many years ago I dealt with isotopes and other sources and I can say that many times it is treated rather cavalierly IMO.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
