“What does the Rad mean?”
“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. Each Count is One Radioactive Decay.”
“A radioactive decay occurs when a radioactive isotope annihilates itself in a radioactive explosion. This happens on a regular and methodical basis. It is worse when the explosion happens inside of you. People working for governments have devised ways to make use of this property of radioactive isotopes in nuclear bombs and reactors.”
“For example, 50 CPM is 50 Counts Per Minute [CPM] or 50 radioactive decays per minute. A related measure is Counts per Second [CPS.] 50 CPM is the same as 0.833 CPS, it is a per minute value divided by 60 seconds.”
“Fifty CPM is an alert level and has been for years for people around radiation. The alert means that the radiation level is higher than it should to be.”
“The Radiation Levels recorded by the EPA in the American cities listed above this past week are well beyond the old days and an alert level of 50 CPM. This radiation is not the kind of pollution than can be diluted or disappears by itself in a few days or years. The “longed lived” radiation lives much longer than this Planet will be around, according to astronomers and physicists.”
“How to Fix the radiation?…..”
“Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.”

Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected people this week around the United States and in your neighborhood.
Last week a reader asked a question about Cesium137 in the atmosphere and air travel.
… the EPA acted decisively by shutting down the reporting functions of hundreds of radiation monitoring stations…
… This is what everybody says, they are wrong of course, Nuclear Armageddon has already happened, probably sometime in the 1980’s.
Around the world about two billion people (2,000,000,000 people) live on fish and other now radioactive products from the sea.
When the radiation starts to liquify your internal organs that’s the end of the line. At what point, short of that, is action called for is the question.
– Getting Zapped like that leads to “shortened life spans” in the quaint expression of the American Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
