Celebrating IAEA Uranium

Posted on Feb 9, 2018 by Safe Radiation

  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has released a post to acknowledge Dimitri Mendeleev’s contributions as an architect of the Periodic Table of Elements.  He was born on 8 February 1834 in Tobolsk, Russia. His version of the periodic table was initially released as a formal presentation on 6 March 1869 and later in the same year published in a scientific journal Zeitschrift für Chemie .  See an extract below from the first...

Posted on Feb 7, 2018 by Safe Radiation

Radon-222 is an isotope of the noble gas ‘radon’. It is radium-226’s daughter. Its genealogy can be traced upwards as the seventh generation of a primordial series parent uranium-238. Variable quantities of uranium and its entire generations of progeny can be found in different rocks and minerals. Being a gas, some of radon exhales from the rocks and appears as traces in the air.   Radon-222 inhalation is associated with increased probability of lung...

Every now and then at Safe Radiation, we receive a phone call or a visit by a concerned person about the potential of being exposed to radioactivity at home. As a professional in the field of ionising radiation safety, Safe Radiation staff attempt to genuinely respond and often guide people to authentic sources of information and advice. The truth is, humans cannot escape radiation exposure. Radioisotopes are an integrated part of our habitat; they are present in the soil, the air we...
Ionising Radiation, are we safe?

Ionising Radiation, are we safe?

Posted on Oct 9, 2013 by Safe Radiation

Modern radiation safety protection principles are based on a no threshold linear relationship between the radiation dose and the detriment it can cause to exposed individuals. Although some scientists question the validity of this linear hypothesis, it is considered a safe approach in light of our current understanding about the harmful effects of ionising radiation. Theoretically, the linear hypothesis means that even a tiny amount of radiation dose could be harmful although the...
