 Radiation in my body ?

According to my PRM 9000 I'm at 60 sometimes as high as 70 CPM, my normal background in doors is around 32...anyone checked themselves...I did this while holding to my chest for five minutes, it seems to move up and down..

At 5m 45s Tom talks about electrostatic build-up caused by movement.

Possibilities...speculations...theories...one as good as the next? :)

If you inhaled or ingested a gamma emitter, it should be present in the lungs or stomach primarily, perhaps the gastrointestinal tract? A torso reading might be different than a foot or hand?

A laundry soap radioactivity on your clothing? Measure your washing machine drum?

Water supply based radiation present on your skin after you rinse in the shower? A timed measurement on a bathtub full of water? Scan your bath soaps?

Food additives permeating your body/skin? Scan your foods?

Electromagnetic charge build-up from the movement of breathing? Hold your breath for a 1 minute timed measurement? :P

I would start with Tom's method of 'progressive shielding' to narrow down what type of radiation...alpha/beta/gamma. Use a few sheets of paper, then a sheet of aluminum foil between the GM tube and your skin/clothing while taking a timed measurement...then move up to something like a ceramic/stoneware plate? I've found ceramics to be relatively dense material. A solid metal 'plate' such as a meat cleaver over the tube opening would probably suffice as well to block out everything but gamma.
Perform a baseline reading of each shielding type as well...the ceramic or metal may be radioactive by itself (granite can be very radioactive).

Record the uSv and CPM readings for each level of shielding and then do a subtraction from highest to lowest to get your various radiation types.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply...I have a lot to learn about radiation...just measured myself again I got up to 101 CPM...definitely no static,background is 32 CPM...I am just curious if anyone else here has had the same experience..I will watch the YouTube video later give those things a try...I appreciate your help...

Just as a curiosity I went looking for radioactive laundry soaps today. Though I didn't find radioactivity warnings, I did find something else...

For those interested in soaping, I found a very handy lye calculator.

I find it funny how in our search about radiation and our health, we learn about the evils of GMO and other not so health things. On the flip side, we learn about things that assist our health, for example ionic silver!

Thank you for your post. It was a little off topic, but so is mine. :lol:
