This is an excellent question. Let us give an example of a procedure that some humans really need to be exposed to - and that is Radiation Therapy. Radiation therapy is usually given to cancer patients to destroy a tumor. Technically, there are two methods of giving radiation to a patient for therapeutic purposes - External and Internal radiation ...

Terminology note: I am going on the assumption that by 'rheumatism' you are referring to rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic destructive inflammatory condition There is not good or sufficient evidence to suggest that 'Radon bathing' confers symptomatic benefit for rheumatoid arthritis (and possibly some other diseases) Is radon therapy a 'helpful therapy'? This ...

No, they aren’t. In the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years. Despite the feeling of some people that more research needs to be done, scientific knowledge in this area is now more extensive than for most chemicals. Based on a recent in-depth ...

Assuming you're in the U.S. and the jammer is mounted atop your building, you need to do an environmental assessment if your transmit power is over 1000 watts. However, as Carey Gregory mentioned, if you're jamming signals in the U.S., you have other legal problems (and you will be jamming signals at 1000 watts). If you're planning on mounting the jammer in ...

I would say no, because Sievert is defined as Joule/kg (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sievert). I cannot find the patient weight or mass irradiated in the provided data.

It is difficult to judge, as we don’t know whether your fracture resulted from an acute direct trauma or whether it is a so called “stress fracture” (due either to an abrupt increase in activity or to chronic overload). While most of the acute fractures (in particular shaft fractures) are visible on lateral view Rx (+/- oblique or modified lateral views Rx)...

From your link: According to the linear no-threshold model, any exposure to ionizing radiation, even at doses too low to produce any symptoms of radiation sickness, can induce cancer due to cellular and genetic damage. Under this assumption survivors of acute radiation syndrome face an increased risk developing cancer later in life. The probability of ...
