Title: Geiger Counter

Welcome to
Various Effects of radiation on Human Body
Radiation emitted when energy transmits in the
form of waves in the space or other material.
There are 3 types of radiations that are alpha,
beta and Gamma. Radiation is counted in rem
unit. Rem stands for roentgen equivalent in
man. To measure the radiation in the
environment, radiation detector device is used.
Radiation detector shows the amount of radiation
in the environment, so that people can protect
themselves from it. The radiation dose in 100
rems, the lymphocyte cell count of blood get
reduced, and can create an infection in the human
body. It is known as the mild radiation sickness.
Besides Blood vessel, the radiation also has an
effect on the heart. Exposure of radioactive
material in 1,000 to 5,000 rems can immediately
damage the small blood vessels of the human body
and cause a heart failure. It can directly lead
to the death of the person who comes in contact
of this huge dosage of radiation.
As, the human brain can face the large dosage of
radiations. Human brain directly damaged when
the exposure of radiation is 5,000 rems or
greater. Radiation damage the nerve cells and
small blood vessels just like the heart, and can
cause seizures and immediate death of the person.
Use of antibiotics, blood products, and stem cell
transplant can help to reduce the effects of
radiation on the human body. Some doctors also
use potassium iodide to overcome the low dosage
radiation effects.
