Every now and then I like to throw up a post that is useful information to print. One of the least understood, but most common fears of the post apocalyptic genre is nuclear radiation.
We all know that a nuclear post apocalyptic scenario has colored the stories, thoughts and fears of generations now, but how many of us actually know the real statistical effects of different dosages of radiation…
When the Japanese nuclear reactor started to melt down people on the west coast of America flooded to buy iodine tablets and other nuclear protective measures because they were scared of what was going to happen. You should have some degree of nuclear knowledge no matter where you live, but if you live in an area that has either a potential to be nuked in a war, or is in close proximity to a nuclear power station, you should have a solid understanding of how nuclear radiation dosing works to prepare your family. Nuclear war has always been one of the most common post apocalyptic scenarios and this dosage chart will help you understand the affects. Stay safe friends.
