what can gamma rays do the human body. I watch a lot ov movies and I seen the hulk (from 2008) and he was involved in a gamma ray bomb and turned into da hulk. can gamma rays really do that? lolz I watch 2 many movies lolz
well gamma rays wont cause you to turn into the hulk sorry about bursting your bubble. well depends on how much gamma radiation you have received if you receive. here is a list of that sorta thing. kinda scary lol.
Less than 5 RAD. No visible symptoms.
5-50 REM. REM = Röentgen equivelant man. 1 REM = ~1 Röentgen. Temporarily decreased red blood cell count.
50-150 RAD. Decreased production of immunity cells; susceptible to infections; nausea, headache, and vomiting may be common. This amount of radiation is usually survivable without any medical treatment-
150-300 REM. 35% percent of exposed die within 30 days. (LD 35/30) Nausea, vomiting, and loss of hair all over the body.
300-400 RAD Severe radiation poisoning, 50% fatality after 30 days (LD 50/30). Other symptoms are similar to the 2–3 Sv dose, with uncontrollable bleeding in the mouth, under the skin and in the kidneys (50% probability at 4 Sv) after the latent phase.
400-600 RAD Acute radiation poisoning, 60% fatality after 30 days (LD 60/30). Fatality increases from 60% at 4.5 Sv to 90% at 6 Sv (unless there is intense medical care). Symptoms start half an hour to two hours after irradiation and last for up to 2 days. After that, there is a 7 to 14 day latent phase, after which generally the same symptoms appear as with 3-4 Sv irradiation, with increased intensity. Female sterility is common at this point. Convalescence takes several months to a year. The primary causes of death (in general 2 to 12 weeks after irradiation) are infections and internal bleeding.
600-1000 REM Acute radiation poisoning, near 100% fatality after 14 days (LD 100/14). Survival depends on intense medical care. Bone marrow is nearly or completely destroyed, so a bone marrow transplant is required. Gastric and intestinal tissue are severely damaged. Symptoms start 15 to 30 minutes after irradiation and last for up to 2 days. Subsequently, there is a 5 to 10 day latent phase, after which the person dies of infection or internal bleeding. Recovery would take several years and probably never complete. Devair Alves Ferreira received a dose of approximately 7.0 Sv (700 REM) during the Goiânia accident and survived, partially due to his fractionated exposure.
1200-2000 RAD. Death is 100% at this stage; symptoms appear immediately. The gastrointestinal system is completely destroyed. Uncontrollable bleeding from the mouth, under the skin and the kidneys occurs. Fatigue and general illness takes its toll. Symptoms are the same as before with increased intensity. Recovery not possible.
More than 2000 RAD. The same symptoms set in instantly, with increased intensity, then cease for several days in the "walking ghost" phase. Suddenly, gastrointestinal cells are destroyed, with a loss of water and excessive bleeding. Death begins with delirium and insanity. When the brain can't control bodily functions like breathing or blood-circulation, one dies. No medical therapy can reverse this; medical help is for comfort only.
scary huh its called radiation symdrome.
duh!!! of corse it will turn you into the hulk, dumbasses! god, you people are stupid. I got into some gamma rays last tuesday and im fine infact im hulking out right now and its really hard to typr withsuch big fngers cause im hulking out you know oh crap I just broke my chair. peace im outta here!!!
No. Gamma rays damage the DNA strands, which causes cancer, burn you from the inside(literally), and have an impressiveness effect. Coupled with neutrons, whose damage often prevent cells from splitting, this will kill you relatively quickly.
Sorry. I meant to spell "immunosupressive".
