Your Radiation This Week – September 10, 2022
Welcome to old hands and newbies alike.
I’ve written about radiation topics for 50 years and published my thoughts and current RadNet data for 22 years.
All data is collected, checked and verified by a federal government agency, RadNet, https://radnet.epa.gov/radnet-public/query.do
Any errors or omissions are my own.
This paper deals with human death and illness and is not recommended for children. If you are over 18 years of age, you are on your own.

3. These stations’ Radiation equals Total Gamma Radiation. Gamma Radiation Monitors are reporting publicly at all these locations. CPM. “Although we can’t see it, taste it, smell it or hear it we can measure radiation and observe its effects. One way to measure radiation which the United States Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] has chosen to use on its radiation websites is in Counts Per Minute or CPM. Each Count is One Radioactive Decay.” Quote from the ‘Your Radiation This Week’ Apr 3, 2015

Plutonium particle in lung tissue: “The black star in the middle of this picture shows the tracks made by alpha rays emitted from a particle of plutonium-239 in the lung tissue of an ape. The alpha rays do not travel very far, but once inside the body, they can penetrate more than 10,000 cells within their range. This set of alpha tracks (magnified 500 times) occurred over a 48-hour period” (Robert Del Tredici, At Work in the Fields of the Bomb , plate 39). 19
