    Fall out from Japan?

    i was thinking this would be a topic on will all the printers and media start sky rocketing as so many things are made in that area and they will not be made for what looks like a long time now.

    Is 750 rads bad? I guess a better question is how bad is 750 rads?

    Radiation Poisoning

    Main article: Radiation poisoning
    To gauge biological effects the dose in rads is multiplied by a 'quality factor' which is dependent on the type of ionizing radiation. The modified dose is now measured in rems (roentgen equivalent mammal, or man)[4]. The number of rems is equal to Q times the number of rads, where Q is the quality factor. Q varies between 1 and 20, but is typically 1 for x-rays and gamma rays and 10 for neutrons. A dose of under 100 rems is subclinical and will produce nothing other than blood changes. 100 to 200 rems will cause illness but will rarely be fatal. Doses of 200 to 1000 rems will likely cause serious illness with poor outlook at the upper end of the range. Doses of more than 1000 rems are almost invariably fatal[5].

    Yeah like that would ever happen.

    I was pleased to hear I'm 9 miles from NYC and with the right wind would have an 80% chance of survival if NYC were bombed. Just a bit closer and you'd have less than 20%.

    Was wondering about that. Photobucket's not a very creditable source and I couldn't find out too much about the Australian Radiation Services.
    What are some good debunking methods?
