Currently in the world there have been quite a lot of dramatic changes with the recent surge of civil and political unrest, climate change, and the recent earthquakes world-wide, including the March 11th, 2011 14:46:23 (+09:00) quake in Sendai, Japan and the tsunamis that followed, and currently the potential threat of Japan's nuclear reactors meltdown and fallout, I feel it is more than about time to "consider the implications and make decisions accordingly".

Below are informational links in relation to the Japanese earthquake disaster on which has also caused world-wide tsunamis and to date 2 Japanese nuclear reactors to explode.

  • Use your own discernment as to information provided.
  • Consider the implications. Make your decisions accordingly.

Expected Effects of Acute Whole-Body Radiation Doses

  • (rads) Probable Effect 0 - 50 No obvious effect, except possibly minor blood changes.
  • 80 - 120 Vomiting and nausea for about 1 day in 5 to 10 percent of exposed personnel. Fatigue but no serious disability.
  • 130 - 170 Vomiting and nausea for about 1 day, followed by other symptoms of radiation sickness in about 25 percent of personnel. No deaths anticipated.
  • 180 - 220 Vomiting and nausea for about 1 day followed by other symptoms of radiation sickness in about 50 percent of personnel. No deaths anticipated.
  • 270 - 330 Vomiting and nausea in nearly all personnel on first day, followed by other symptoms of radiation sickness. About 20 percent deaths within 2 to 6 weeks after exposure; survivors convalescent for about 3 months.
  • 400 - 500 Vomiting and nausea in all personnel on first day, followed by other symptoms of radiation sickness. About 50 percent deaths within 1 month; survivors convalescent for about 6 months.
  • 550 - 750 Vomiting and nausea in all personnel within 4 hours from exposure, followed by other symptoms of radiation sickness. Up to 100 percent deaths; few survivors convalescent for about 6 months.
  • 1000 Vomiting and nausea in all personnel within 1 to 2 hours. Probably no survivors from radiation sickness.
  • 5000 Incapacitation almost immediately. All personnel will be fatalities within 1 week.
