What Exactly Does Radiation Do To The Body ?
« on: 20/03/2011 18:06:34 »
The brave 50 that are still at Daiichi certainly deserve incredible recognition....

....can ewe tell me what does radiation actually do to the body ?..it's cells ?...how does it do it ?....how does one prevent it ?..stall it ?..cure it ?

Is there good radiation as well as bad radiation ? ie: a radiation that ONLY does good ?


whajafink ?

It's FM.

OK - well, it can be good. Geezer was subjected to a load of gamma radiation 25 years ago, which is why I am able to post this, although you may not necessarily consider that to be good.

Well, it did cause a bit of sunburn. I had a bit of radiation treatment after the removal of a tumour. The side effects from the radiation were really not bad at all.
