Alpha Ionizing Radiation Dangers; 'Natural' Thorium, Thallium, Polonium, Radon, Radium, Plutonium, Uranium, And Curium Are Deadly Dangerous And Toxic Heavy Metal Poisons As Well - What Happens After Inhaling Or Ingesting Alpha Hot Particles?


Some pro nuclear apologists like to promote the hormesis theory. They claim that 'natural' alpha radiation emitting elements such as thorium, polonium, radon, radium, plutonium and uranium are 'harmless' because they are 'natural' and second, because they only produce alpha radiation, which can be stopped by the skin. Because alpha radiation will not get any further in than that, these 'natural' alpha emitting radioactive elements pose no danger to anyone. Is this claim true? Let's dive a little deeper and find out a little bit more about the rest of this story.

Let's find out if the hormesis theory is true, shall we?

Death by Polonium-210

Did you know that if absorbed, breathed in, or ingested, that radioactive Polonium is 250 billion times more toxic than cyanide?

"It is powerfully and lethally toxic - by weight of toxin, polonium poisoning is billions of times more potent than cyanide poisoning. Polonium is one of the most toxic substances known."
Did you know that all nuclear reactors that generate electricity produce 3,000 toxic, deadly and radioactive substances, even when they are operating normally?

A nuclear reactor power facility is where radioactive Polonium comes from for example. When these nuclear reactors have accidents, which they often do, they release huge quantities of 3,000 artificial, man made, invisible death and suffering creating substances, which then hang round for hundreds of thousands or millions of years.

Is this something any person with common sense wants around their children and families? 

Let's dive into just alpha radiation and find out more about it, shall we?

Alpha Particle Toxicity

According to Wikipedia; "Being relatively heavy and positively charged, alpha particles tend to have a very short mean free path, and quickly lose kinetic energy within a short distance of their source. This results in several MeV being deposited in a relatively small volume of material. This increases the chance of cellular damage in cases of internal contamination. 

"In general, external alpha radiation is not harmful since alpha particles are effectively shielded by a few centimeters of air, a piece of paper, or the thin layer of dead skin cells. Even touching an alpha source is usually not harmful, though many alpha sources also are accompanied by beta-emitting radio daughters, and alpha emission is also accompanied by gamma photon emission. 

If substances emitting alpha particles are ingested, inhaled, injected or introduced through the skin, then it could result in a measurable dose, (or even death, as the video and article about radioactive polonium above so clearly point out.)

"The relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of alpha radiation is higher than that of beta or gamma radiation. RBE quantifies the ability of radiation to cause certain biological effects, notably either cancer or cell-death, for equivalent radiation exposure. 

"However, another component of alpha radiation is the recoil of the parent nucleus, termed alpha recoil. By some estimates, this might account for most of the internal radiation damage, as the recoil nuclei are typically heavy metals which preferentially collect on the chromosomes. In some studies,[3] this has resulted in a RBE approaching 1,000 instead of the much lower value used in governmental regulations.

(In other words, government assumptions and regulations around the toxicity and dangers of polonium are way off, by orders of magnitude.)


Just because something is 'naturally radioactive' does not mean it is hazard free and ok to be around. Many people mistakenly believe that if radiation coming from a rock or the air is 'natural' that it somehow changes into something healthy or good for you. Nothing could be further from the truth.. All radiation; alpha, beta, gamma, x-rays and neutrons are hazardous to your health and cumulative, so each increasing dose increases your risk of genetic damage, disease and/or cancer. 

"The largest natural contributor to public radiation dose is radon, a naturally occurring, radioactive gas found in soil and rock.[4] If the gas is inhaled, some of the radon particles may attach to the inner lining of the lung. These particles continue to decay, emitting alpha particles which can damage cells in the lung tissue.[5]"

Electron relaxation and X-rays 

Immediately after a nuclear decay we will find that what had been a neutral atom of the mother species has become an ion of the daughter species; because the nuclear charge has changed, the number of electrons in orbit about the nucleus no longer matches the number of protons inside the nucleus. This has two consequences: first, the ion will neutralize itself by stealing an available electron from a neighboring atom or by shedding an excess electron. 

Second, the resulting new neutral atom is likely to be in a highly excited state: the wave functions for the electrons of the mother atom in its ground state have significant probabilities to be ground or excited states of the daughter nucleus. When, typically quite promptly, the daughter atom's electrons relax into their ground state, the excess energy is radiated away as one or more photons. Since the transition is between states of the daughter atom, the energy spectrum of these X-rays is characteristic of the daughter species, not of the mother species. The health hazard from these radon generated X-rays is sometimes far more acute than the hazard from the alpha or beta radiation of the nuclear transformation itself. 

What the scientist is saying is that radon decays, and when it does, it releases X-rays into the surrounding areas. So alpha radiation is not just harmless stuff that a piece of paper can stop, as the pro nuclear apologists like to claim, it is deadly dangerous when it gets into your body. Because these alpha radiation sources all turn into particles, dust and/or gas, they can be breathed in or ingested via water or food. Even your eyes can take in radioactive substances through this wet mucus membrane. 

All radiation exposure is cumulative, and every increase in radiation exposure generates more risk of cancer. This is why the EPA requires radon mitigation in homes that have excessive radon gas, over a certain amount.

Radium contaminated products

Marie Curie was researching 'natural' radioactive substances such as radium. She died of leukemia. 

"The death of Marie Curie at age 66 from leukemia was probably caused by prolonged exposure to high doses of ionizing radiation, but it is not clear if this was due to alpha radiation or X-rays. Curie worked extensively with radium, which decays into radon,[6] along with other radioactive materials that emit beta and gamma rays. However, Curie also worked with unshielded X-ray tubes during World War I, and an analysis of her skeleton during a reburial showed a level of radioisotope burden. (It only takes a low level or 'dose' of radiation to kill someone, as in the case of the Polonium poisoning above.)

Polonium - Periodic Table of Videos

"Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko's 2006 murder by radiation poisoning is thought to have been carried out with polonium-210, an alpha emitter. 

"Static eliminators typically use polonium-210, an alpha emitter, to ionize air, allowing the 'static cling' to more rapidly dissipate."

Hint; it may not be such a good idea to use these products..

Polonium Poisoning Caused Arafat's Death, By Al Jazeera

Tests reveal that Arafat’s final personal belongings – his clothes, his toothbrush, even his iconic kaffiyeh – contained abnormal levels of polonium, a rare, highly radioactive element. Those personal effects, which were analyzed at the Institut de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, were variously stained with Arafat’s blood, sweat, saliva and urine. The tests carried out on those samples suggested that there was a high level of polonium inside his body when he died.

Polonium is produced by nuclear reactors. The PRIMARY use of nuclear reactors is to produce plutonium fuel and enough polonium to act as a trigger, so that both together will make multiple nuclear weapons. 

Any nation that has a nuclear reactor has the capability to make multiple nuclear bombs very quickly. Electricity generation is just an excuse designed to get the public to 'buy into' the idea of a nuclear reactor, because that seems like a positive idea. 

But why would a town pay for electricity for 30 years, and then agree to the risk of contaminating the whole area for 250,000 years, plus pay for guarding the waste for 1 million years? It does not make any sense. Now add in the risk of nuclear war, where everyone on the planet is killed, or a Carrington Event happens and all nuclear plants melt down, and the whole idea of nuclear power just gets totally insane.

CodeShutdownJune 26, 2015 polonium 210 seems to be in fish and plankton and people. It seems to be about one five hundredths the amount of potassium 40 in humans on a becquerel basis which is more or less meaningless. Its in cigarettes, so one could have a cigarette equivalent dose, like the bananas.

"The concentration of 210Po is 148 mBq/g in phytoplankton 3,145 mBq/ g in shrimp and 1,026 mBq/ g in mussel soft tissues 262 mBq g in fish. In contrast, humans have an average 210Po concentration of 0.148 mBq /g, yielding a dose that is up to two orders of magnitude lower than those received by marine animals+

Plutonium is one of the most toxic substances on the planet. According to some experts, just 9 pounds of this substance can poison everyone on Earth, if distributed equally. Plutonium is made by nuclear reactors and is one of those things that the military greatly desires in order to make nuclear bombs. Plutonium forms the basis for killing millions of people. Much like polonium, a VERY SMALL amount that cannot be seen, felt, or measured with a Geiger Counter is enough to kill you. One nano particle inhaled and stuck in the lungs is enough to give anyone lung cancer. 

In experiments with dogs, there was no dose low enough to NOT cause the death of these animals. Just 1 nano particle size of dust (1 microgram) that could not even be seen, was enough to kill every dog tested.

Radioactive and toxic plutonium have been found all around the world after the Fukushima accident. The above video is just ONE example of this substance being found, out of many independent researchers who tracked this hard to detect, but deadly substance.

Pro nuclear apologists like to talk about how alpha radiation cannot harm anyone, because the alpha type of radiation is blocked by the skin. This all sounds good for a 30 second sound bite for the consumption of mass media viewers, but this factoid ignores the DANGER of alpha radiation particles, namely; what happens when you INHALE or absorb this radioactive heavy metal internally through food, water or air? These radioactive elements do not just stay in one place. They bio concentrate up in the food chain and move with air, water, wind and more. In the following short video, nuclear expert Arnie Gunderson explains how deadly just ONE alpha particle can be, if it is inhaled. 

Of course, alpha particles do not just float around and land on your skin. They get into your lungs, intestines, and even into your organs and glands. But the nuclear apologists do not like to focus on that, because it makes nuclear power look like what it is, a deadly game that only lunatics and mass murderers would pursue.


See the picture of what a radioactive 'hot particle' does to lung tissue below... Due to Fukushima, every person on Earth inhaled thousands of these hot particles. Did any of them lodge in your lungs or sinuses? Did you ingest some with food or water?

Bottom line, there are over 100 ALPHA radiation emitting radioactive elements or isotopes created, and most of these deadly substances are man made, inside electricity generating nuclear reactors. We have only discussed a few of them here. To discuss all of them, would take a very thick book. To discuss the dangers of all 1,200 deadly, toxic and radioactive substances would take a lifetime.

Is this what our communities want to spend taxpayer money on? Do we really want to make the choice to spend time producing more death and suffering instead of more life and living? Do we really want more death and suffering producing agents in our air, our food, our water, and our children and seven future generations of our children's children?
