Radiation Dosage Chart - Information Is Beautiful
enlarged version.

Japanese radiation fears may be greatly exaggerated

What is not always realised is that everyone is exposed to small amounts of radiation every day, simply by living on the planet Earth. Exposure is measured in millisieverts and the annual average can range between 1 and 10 millisieverts, depending on where you live. Some places simply have more natural radiation than others.

Some radiation is even being used as diagnostic tool, ie x-ray, CT, etc and treatment, ie radiotherapy for cancers, ie cervical cancer, etc.

Therefore, i think exaggerated preoccupation with radiation is totally unnecessary.

Let's move on.
