Radiation Dose Chart
This is a chart of the ionizing radiation dose a person ean absorb from various soureye. The unit for absorbed dose is "sieve's" (tht), and measurer the effect a dose of radiation
will have on the cells of the body. gne liebert (all at once) will make you sick, and too many more will kill you, but we safely absorb small amounts of natural radiation daily.
Note: The emme number of subverts absorbed in a shorter time will generally more damage, but your cumulative [ dose plays a big role in things like waneer risk.

Chart by Randall Munroe, with help from Ellen, Senior Reactor operator at the Reed Research Reactor, who suggested the idea and provided a lot of the soureye. I’ m sure I' added in
lote of mistakes; it' s for general education only. If you’ re basing radiation safety procedures on an internet PNG image and things go wrong, you have no one to blame but yourself.
