  1. 1. Radiation effects on humans

  3. 3. Effects of radiaton exposure● The radiation sickness including ○ nausea ○ vomiting ○ headache ○ some loss of white blood cells
  4. 4. About rems harm● Internal harm - line the digestive tract ○ nerve cells ○ other cells● White blood cells ○ It is severe loss
  5. 5. About illness from rems● illness - about cancer ○ blood cancer ○ lung cancer ○ thyroid cacer ○ breast cancer ○ cancers of other organs
  6. 6. About treatment● Is there effective treatment of fatal radiation? ○ No. ○ No effective treatment available● Treatment for less radiation ○ It can be saved ○ Its way includes blood transfusions ○ IT also includes bone-marrow transplants
  7. 7. About treatment (2)● About bone-marrow transplants ○ It rejuvenate the supply of white blood cells which was affected by the radiation● Are they distinguished between fatal and less? ○ No ○ These distinction is very difficult and impossible
  8. 8. Conclusion● The rem and radiation ○ It is important ○ It is dangerous● Differences of radiation: ○ fatal radiation - will die and cant be saved ○ less radiation - can be saved
