      According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, about half of the radiation we’re exposed to comes from natural background radiation and half is from man-made sources. Natural background. There are many different types and sources of radiation. For the purpose and the study of radiation protection, it is imperative to understand sources of ionizing radiation and the unit of measurement of exposure. Calculate your annual dose using the IOP worksheet 1. 2.

Radiation Exposure of the U. Population from Consumer Products and Miscellaneous Sources (N C R P REPORT): National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements: : Books.

Abstract. This review of the literature indicates that there is a variety of consumer products and miscellaneous sources of radiation that result in exposure to the U.S.

population. A summary of the number of people exposed to each such source, an estimate of the resulting dose equivalents to the exposed population, and an estimate of the average annual population dose equivalent are tabulated.

Most human exposure is so small the dose can be measured in millirems ( millirems = 1 rem). The average person’s exposure is about millirems a year, about of which is from background radiation.

Among the furniture, clothing, jewelry, books, dolls, dishes, and many other objects sold at flea markets and antique shops, you will likely find items that contain radioactive compounds. These items were generally made and originally sold before the health effects of radiation were well understood and long before radiation protection regulations were put in place.

We are exposed to radiation from materials in the earth itself, from naturally occurring radon in the air, from outer space, and from inside our own bodies (as a result of the food and water we consume). This radiation is measured in units called millisieverts (mSv). The average dose per person from all sources is about mSv per year.

Radiation Exposure to the U.

This is a comprehensive statement on the total exposure of members of the United States population from all sources on the basis of a common unit, the effective dose equivalent.

Considered are six main source categories: natural radiation, occupational (radiation workers), nuclear fuel cycle, consumer products, miscellaneous environmental sources, and medical diagnosis and therapy.

Devices designed for use as static eliminators which contain, as a sealed source or sources, byproduct material consisting of a total of not more than microcuries of polonium per device.

In Marchthe National Council on Radiation Protection and. Everyone is exposed to ionizing radiation. Approximately 82% of this exposure is natural background from cosmic and terrestrial sources, and 18% is due to man-made sources.

Public exposure to ionizing radiation or contamination of the environment by radioactivity engenders intense fear. The emotional and psychologic stresses resulting from exposure should be recognized and addressed early in. Radiation exists all around us, from both natural and manmade sources, and is in two forms: ionizing and non-ionizing radiation.

Ionizing radiation is a form of energy that acts by removing electrons from atoms and molecules of materials that include air, water, and living tissue. Ionizing radiation can travel unseen and pass through these materials.

This chapter presents a brief introduction to radioisotopes, sources and types of radiation, applications, effects, and occupational protection. The natural and artificial sources of radiations are discussed with special reference to natural radioactive decay series and artificial radioisotopes.

Applications have played significant role in improving the quality of human life. Radiation - Radiation - Artificial sources: In addition to natural background radiation, people are exposed to radiation from various man-made sources, the largest of which is the application of X rays in medical diagnosis.

Although the doses delivered in different types of X-ray examinations vary from a small fraction of a mGy to tens of mGy (Table 7), the average annual dose per capita from.

** Some of the radiation sources listed in this chart result in an exposure to only one part of the body. For example, false teeth and crowns result in a radiation dose to the mouth. The annual dose numbers given here represent the "effective dose" to the whole body.

Ionizing radiation (ionising radiation) is radiation, traveling as a particle or electromagnetic wave, that carries sufficient energy to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing an atom or a molecule.

Ionizing radiation is made up of energetic subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at high speeds (usually greater than 1% of the speed of light), and electromagnetic waves on.
