1. Dangers, safety and protection

  Title Author Description
EN Introduction to ionizing radiation Occupational Safety and Health Administration  
EN Radiation and Its Health Effects United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission Notice the image and chart at the bottom. A 3-millirem exposure is equally likely to kill you as smoking one cigarette. Living near or working on a nuclear powerplant for a full year results in 0.10 millirem. It can be concluded that smoking one cigarette is about as dangerous as living near or on a nuclear powerplant for 30 years.
