What are the possible bad effects of nuclear radiation. Do you think Japans nuclear radiation may cause damages to Japan and the country nearby?
Depends how much radiation you are exposed to.
Radiation is measured in mSv (millisievert).
10 000 mSv - Enough for you to die within a few weeks.
4000 mSv - Same amount that the Tsjernobil workers were exposed to and most of them died month after.
2000 mSv - Increased risk of cancer, especially thyriod and leukemia. You won't die emediately of radiation sickness.
1000 mSWv - This is the highest level measured so far outside the Foekoesjima nuclear plant and is the maximum level of radiation the recue workers are advised to be exposed to.
400 mSv - At this level the chances of contacting sertain deadly cancers is increased by 2-4%
100 mSv - There is no proof of any health risks when exposed to this level of radiation. It is the same amount that workers in nuclear plants are exposed to over 5 years.
9 mSv - The yearly exposure of people who work on airplanes that fly long distances.
0,1 mSv - X-ray of the chest.
0,01 mSv - X-ray of your teeth.
Symptoms of radiation sickness:
-Burns on the skin
now thats call a good answer
lol that was too simple
