No Right to Live
Your child has grown up and more and more often he talks about a baby brother or a baby sister? And you do not mind yourself to become parents one more time? Or maybe you are looking forward to taking care of your grandchildren?
Beware of radiation!
People of the entire world, living in the same «global village» are at risk of becoming radioactive «sworn brothers and sisters». Until recently the Slavs and the Japanese had probably only one sad comparison in common: the total radioactive discharge of Chernobyl equaled 500 bombs dropped on Hiroshima. Now, however unfortunately, we have «become related» seriously and forever.
All of us are to some extant vulnerable to the effects of electromagnetic waves and increased background radiation. Those enemies act invisibly and undermine our health eating the organism from within. Doctors and researchers the world over are concerned with fighting them. Despite the modern science progress we constantly go back to nature for solutions of most difficult problems.
Our organism is a self-regulating system. It removes all harmful or useless metabolism products. But an improper way of life and unfavorable environmental impacts «break down» those filters and then harmful substances begin destroying our precious health. Polluted air and water, food larded with chemicals – all this leads to toxic substances accumulating in our organism like in a garbage dump.
TO EACH ONE LIVING – HIS/HER OWN CHERNOBYL
Let us talk about radiation that cannot be avoided but against which it is still possible to protect yourself, if there is a will. It is delivered to us from the Cosmos, from the Sun, by minerals in the ground, by radon gas and by humans accumulating in themselves potassium-40 and rubidium-87 from food, air and water.
Uranium and Plutonium pawnshop
The humanity has «pawned» itself to that outfit forever, if you remember the half-life of those substances. They form the basis for nuclear power stations’ operations, for weapons and for the nuclear waste resulting. The practice shows that no single development in mastering the atom is fully controllable, predictable and safe.
Do you live far away from Chernobyl and believe that radiation will never affect you? Unfortunately, this is not quite correct. Radiation effects are present everywhere. The main thing is to know how the exposure acts and what can be done for protection against those pervasive «X-rays». You have a family, a good job and a summer country house with a small plot of land.
A special place among «man-made» radiation exposure sources is taken by building materials, garbage dumps, TV-sets, burning fuels, medical procedures and equipment, smoke detectors and items with dials, hands and figures glowing in the dark. All of them in their total exacerbate the radiation troubles causing the irrepairable damage to the environment and human health. Many a little makes life shorter.
Yes, really, where would we be without them? Power lines, cables, transformers, generators, house power supply, household appliances and office equipment, computers, radio- and mobile phones, radars, TV towers, railroads – it is hard to imagine our lives today without all that. However, it always cuts at least both ways, so it is necessary to realize that the technical progress has its negative side, especially when some process is environmentally unfriendly and hazardous to health.
The Dangers of Radiation
Which vitally important part of your body is most vulnerable to the effects of radiation? The answer to this question depends on whether you are a man or a woman. Men, the stronger sex, risk loosing their potency as a result of the adenoma of the prostate gland, while the most vulnerable part of the woman’s body is its symbol of motherhood — breasts. These distinctive parts are most likely to fall victims to cancer cells proliferating as a result of the radiation exposure.
