What Is a Dosimeter? Dosimeters Only Measure 1/7th Of True Radiation Levels On Average, How/Where To Purchase Radiation Detector, Dosimeter Or Geiger Counter

http://youtu.be/5XIUWqOPEEc

What is a dosimeter? There are at least three different types. Learn about them via the above short video. 

WORKERS AT FUKUSHIMA FORCED TO COVER DOSIMETERS WITH LEAD 


Soon after the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster happened, it has been reported that at least one and possible more than one nuclear subcontractors ordered workers at Fukushima to cover their dosimeters with lead to lower official levels of radiation would be reported; allowing workers to work longer hours inside the plant. By itself this is just an isolated incident that means almost nothing. But when put together with many other things, it starts adding up to a pattern of deception, lies and coverups.

RADIATION DOSES MEASUREMENT METHOD CHANGED, TO LOWER FINAL READING


According to Japan Times; "To facilitate the return of evacuees, the Nuclear Regulation Authority has approved a change in the way radiation doses are monitored around the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station that will effectively result in lower readings, but observers warn this could raise public mistrust. The change calls for basing monitoring on data from dosimeters held by individual residents.


TUBE TYPE DOSIMETERS MUCH LESS SENSITIVE THAN PANCAKE STYLE GEIGER COUNTERS, ONLY COUNT 1/7TH THE AMOUNT OF RADIATION


Since dosimeters read only about 1/7th of the amount of radiation that is actually there, because they are much less sensitive than a good pancake style Geiger Counter, they will in effect, give the 'appearance' that radiation levels have dropped, when in actual real life, nothing has changed, and dangerous levels of radiation in soil are still present. 

It is a well known fact that radiation detectors only measure a small percentage of radiation present at any given time. The cheaper and less expensive the radiation meter or dosimeter, generally speaking, the smaller a percentage of the total radiation that is actually there it measures. The cheapest meters such as those in a smart phone for example, may not register any radiation at all, despite dangerous radiation levels being there.

DOSIMETER READINGS REFLECT ARTIFICIAL LOWER RADIATION INDOOR ENVIRONMENT WHERE MOST PEOPLE SPEND MOST OF THEIR TIME


Basing outdoor radiation readings on dosimeters that are mainly hanging on the necks of people who spend all or most of their time indoors will further reduce radiation readings, in an artificial way. Radiation levels inside of homes are usually a small fraction of radiation levels found in outside air, especially if the air is filtered with HEPA filters.

Let's summarize what we have learned so far, shall we? We know that dosimeters only measure a small amount of radiation that is actually there, on the order of 10% of real levels, compared to a sensitive pancake style radiation detector, which might measure . Then indoor dosimeter readings may only be 10% of what the radiation levels are outdoors, which drops the radiation readings recorded by dosimeters again, by orders of magnitude.

WHAT THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT IS NOT SAYING ABOUT FUKUSHIMA





AIR READINGS USED TO MINIMIZE TRUE RADIATION LEVELS

Now add another fact. Nuclear 'experts' use air radiation readings to minimize the TRUE radiation readings on the ground, or in the ground. Radiation readings on the ground are much higher than airborne readings, and the higher one goes into the air, the lower the levels of radiation are. So add all of these things together, and what do you get? There is a huge COVER UP, deception and and lots of lies being spread around about the true radiation soil based levels that kids and pets are exposed to by being in close contact with dirt! The pro nuclear apologists will actually try and make fun of people measuring radiation in dirt, as that is not their 'official' way of doing things.

MEASURING ONLY EXTERIOR RADIATION BUT NOT INTERNAL RADIATION 


Now add another layer of deception and coverup to this disaster. Measuring OUTSIDE of the body radiation levels with a dosimeter is one kind of deception. INSIDE the body, it only takes one hot particle to cause cancer. Dosimeters do not measure what radiation a person is getting inside their body. They do not measure accumulated radiation building up from ingesting food, water, or inhaled dust and nano particles. 

So what have we learned? Dosimeters are a VERY POOR way of measuring true risk and radiation exposure. The way that the Japanese are using dosimeters as the 'official' government way of measuring risk is not scientific, safe, or even prudent when one considers health risks overall.

LET'S COMPARE FINANCIAL DEBT TO RADIATION COMING FROM A NUCLEAR ACCIDENT, HOW TO MAGICALLY REDUCE DEBT FROM 1 MILLION DOLLARS TO .01 CENT


Wouldn't it be nice if you could handle your debts that you owe to the bankers in this same way? Let's say that you owe $1,000,000 on your home to the bank. But with some fancy eraser work and some computer estimating that figures out algorithms, derivative values and future values of debt, plus your loss of income due to retirement, let's just say that you only owe $100,000 dollars, ok?

Now let's do this same process again because you live indoors and hardly ever leave the house, and the computer will spit out that you only owe $10,000. This is the equivalent of what the Japanese are doing with their dosimeter readings and radiation levels, measuring only indoor air radiation above the ground.

Real radiation readings all the way down to Tokyo measured on the ground and particularly in scattered hot spots, are the equivalent of $1,000,000. But the official reports will only be reporting $10,000 dollars worth, or less. 

But then the amount owed is reduced again, because we are measuring only external, not internal radiation, so the amount of radiation and the amount we owe is reduced again, to $1,000. 

Now we can reduce that amount again, to $10, because we are not measuring the soil level of radiation, just the air. 

Now we can reduce the amount again, and only owe .01 cent, because we are not accounting for the health effects of inhaling hot particles, which are not measured or accounted for at all... And then we have the minimum action level, which is a fancy term used to dismiss radiation entirely. If a radiation reading is below 1,000 bq/kg in the US for example, it is below the minimum action level, and thus the official report can say undetectable radiation, or below minimum action levels. Most people assume  that they found no radiation at all, but that is not the case, as we just learned. 

This is an easy method of reducing what is owned from 1 MILLION dollars to .01 cent, as well as reducing the amount of radiation measured, thus making land right next to a nuclear accident site 'safe' to live in. 

This unethical and immoral way of announcing radiation exposure levels will guarantee that countless future generations of children in Japan will suffer from a wide variety of diseases and early death, just like children in Belarus, or other low level radiation contaminated areas.

THROUGH MAGIC AND VARIOUS PLOYS, RADIATION LEVELS HAVE BEEN REDUCED, SO EVERYONE CAN COME BACK AND LIVE IN FUKUSHIMA NOW


NHK WORLD, Nov. 11, 2013: Experts call for change in radiation measuring [...] A panel of experts is urging the Japanese government to change the way it measures radiation exposure for evacuees from the Fukushima nuclear accident when they return home. [...] To date, officials have estimated exposure based on radiation levels in the environment. But the panel says they should measures exposure by equipping individuals with radiation monitors called dosimeters. Radiation measurements made by dosimeters tend to be one-third to one-seventh of readings estimated through environmental monitoring. [...] The panel also calls for assigning local government officials and health nurses as advisors in each community. [...] 

Jiji Press, Nov. 11, 2013: [...] The proposal comes at a time when the government is aiming to lift the evacuation advisory for areas where annual radiation doses are estimated at 20 millisieverts or lower. [...] The new method is expected to help promote returns of evacuees as well as reduce costs for decontaminating areas tainted by radioactive fallout. 

NHK Newsline, Nov. 11, 2013 (at 0:45 in): Readings on such devices [personal dosimeters] tend to be one-third to one-seventh lower than estimates based on environmental monitoring. [...] Radiation measurements made by dosimeters tend to be one-third to one-seventh of readings estimated through environmental monitoring. [...] “Individual monitor readings don’t necessarily reflect different radiation levels in a household.” -Fukushima evacuee 


HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL DIE FROM FUKUSHIMA MEGA NUCLEAR DISASTER?


There is a consistent, steady, continuous effort to minimize the radiation readings after any nuclear accident. The effort to downplay and hide what is really going on both inside the Fukushima Daichi plant, as well as in Japan generally seems to work in the mass media, especially when it is repeated over and over again, in a propaganda like fashion.

RADIOACTIVE HOT PARTICLES AND CONTAMINATED SOIL FOUND ALL THE DOWN TO TOKYO, BUT MOST PEOPLE ARE IN DENIAL OR DON'T WANT TO KNOW


This latest attempt to lower the radiation readings through an unethical and unscientific manner, in order to force residents to come back to towns that are highly contaminated, is a good example of just how desperate the Japanese nuclear industry, medical industry and government are to cover up the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster. Bottom line, almost all of them are pretending this mega disaster never happened. There are just a few voices speaking the truth...

The residents know, if they are even half way paying attention and looking on the Internet for information. In a country where people are culturally taught to not speak out or protest, there are now massive protests and people speaking out, which points to their desperation and a lack of meaningful response to this mega nuclear disaster.

HOW TO PURCHASE A DOSIMETER OR GEIGER COUNTER AND/OR RELATED SUPPLIES


To purchase a Geiger Counter click on link to be taken to a store where you can compare prices on radiation detectors, by click on;  A Green Road's Ionizing Radiation Detector Store.

Tube type, inexpensive detectors can only detect things like extremely high radiation fallout from a nuclear accident. Pancake style Geiger Counters are much more sensitive and can be used for detecting much lower levels of radiation, including foods for example, but it will not tell you the type of radiation.

TUBE TYPE DETECTOR


The SOEKS is a tube type, inexpensive radiation detector which is designed to detect things like extremely high radiation fallout from a nuclear accident, but not much else. Don't try to use this for testing food, as it will not do the job. It is also a good radiation meter to start with for beginners.



DOSIMETER, PLUS TUBE TYPE RADIATION DETECTOR


For the person who is looking for something that can total up the radiation one is exposed to over a period of time such as a month and keep track of it. It is designed to be kept with you every day. It can also do double duty as an inexpensive radiation detector, all in one. This Ecotest brand is a good choice.




SENSITIVE PANCAKE STYLE GEIGER COUNTER


The Inspector is a great brand with a very sensitive round pancake style detector head on it, which can be used to test dried food, seaweed, leaves, dirt, and more, via a time test function that it has built in.


GAMMA RAY DETECTING WRIST WATCH


The Polimaster is a high end gamma detecting wrist watch for the person who has everything, and money is not a concern.


A fashionable Gamma dosimeter and Swiss-made watch in one housing. Recommended for everyday use by general public

The PM1208M Wrist Gamma Indicator is a stylish combination of gamma dosimeter and a Swiss-made quartz watch that continuously monitors environmental radiation levels and alerts user in case of danger with an audible alarm. The PM1208M can be used by both professionals dealing with radiation on a daily basis and concerned citizens

The Swiss-made RONDA 763 with quartz movement ensures the reliability and accuracy of the watch operation. The waterproof steel case enables the use of the instrument on the depths up to 100 meters (328 feet). The watch also has an electroluminescent backlight allowing it to be operated in the dark.

Your radiation protection posture is only as good as the warning systems that are in place. The small dosimeter is essential for professionals working with radiation sources as well as for anyone concerned with radioecological issues. 

As the background radiation level increases greatly at high-altitudes, Polimaster recommends the PM1208M wrist gamma indicator to frequent airplane travelers for monitoring their radiation exposure.

The PM1208M requires only minimum power consumption and will operate continuously for one year from one CR2032 battery

If you don't have a radiation detector, click on the link below. This brand is recommended by AGRP and has the round pancake style of detector head, which is much more sensitive than the cheaper tube types of detectors. Cheaper brands and many more choices are available at the AGRP store link..

SUMMARY 


One of the consequences of the pretense, minimization and denial is that the radiation denialists cannot effectively deal with reality, such as the 600 to 6,000 pounds of plutonium dust released globally from Fukushima, the multiple melted out coriums, and the 400 plus TONS of high level radioactive water that is pouring into the Pacific DAILY from the Fukushima site, even to this day.
