About Radiation In March 11, Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant damagedand radiation have escaped from the facility. There are two kind of radiation such as non-ionizing andionizing. Ionizing is dangerous for us and that emits gamma rays andthe alpha or beta particles. That rays are very harmful for people.
What happen ?If you exposed radiation for a long time, you could realizesome initial symptoms.First, nausea and fatigue, vomiting. However, that symptomsare not very serious. Second, hair loss and diarrhea. Its a little serioussymptoms because we think that happened, you exposedradiation for a long time.Last, loss of consciousness and, inevitably, death.
Compare the nuclear bombThe nuclear power plants emitting radiation is only a littleradiation compared with the nuclear bomb.The nuclear power plants can not kill 166,000 people such asHiroshima.However, the children are dangerous because they cantprotect their body. The nuclear power plants and nuclear bomb also dangerousin anyway.
About cesium-137, iodine-131Iodine is not dangerous compared with cesium, but also tworadiation are harmful for people. Iodine-131 has a half-life of eight days.However, it is dangerous for children.Cesium-137 has a half-life of 30 years. So, it is very long. Furthermore, These radiation things are usually composingthe food, water, something, so we must pay attention tothose things.
In conclusionThe radiation has a half life, but some radiation are verylong half time.So, we should do the decontamination. We must protect children because they cant protectthemselves.
