Do you know how many bananas you need to eat to die of radiation? 😱

That's right, you can die of radiation by eating 🍌. But don't worry! I don’t actually think anyone would dare to do it.

So, here is a guide on: What to know before you go bananas about #NuclearRadiation?
In 2017 the @UofCalifornia read our minds by answering a question that we all have:

How much #radiation is too much radiation? And well, the answer is more simple than we thought 👉it’s just a bunch of bananas.
But first, we need to get familiar and understand some terms. Are you ready?

Everything is composed of atoms (Yep, the periodic table). Some of these atoms are unstable & decay or break apart, & when this happens it emits what we call #Radiation.

Can you throw #NuclearWaste in the trash can?🗑

Will you become The Hulk if you are exposed to its #radiation?🧟‍♀️

Do you actually know what happens with nuclear waste?

Come! Let’s find out 👇

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t glow green like you see in some movies.
Before we get into crazy nuclear terms, let’s identify the types of #NuclearWaste:
High-Level: Most of the #NuclearWaste- the ‘scary’ one

Intermediate-L: Components, medical & lab items- 🏥 also generate this waste

Low-L: Tools, clothes-Hospitals, research facilities, NPP too
Ready for the action? Now we need to get something straight:

#Radiation?Moving energy. It’s a natural process

So, #Radioactivity refers to an atom losing energy by emitting particles capable of removing electrons from other atoms ⚠️Could be hazardous
We’ll discuss this later*

BREAKING - The 3d reactor of the Zaporizha Nuclear Power Plant disconnected from the energy system of #Ukraine. as a safety precaution. Only the 4th out of 6 reactors continues to generate electicity. No more fire at the station.
[2] The #Russian Army, which is currently blocking the roads around the #Zaporizhzha #nuclearpowerplant, allowed #Ukrainian firefighters from #Energodar city nearby to enter the power plant and do their work.
[3] The director of the #Zaporizhzha #nuclearpowerplant is in charge and assured the province governor that there's no radiation leak / contamination. The levels of #radiation within the plant are within the norm as usual. #Ukraine

#PatientCentric care, #PtExperience #Tokenism, #HoldingSpace #WeAreBetterTogether ⚠️ long thread.
Recently I attended a meeting of an organization whose focus is in improving #healthcare. This is a highly respected organization. One ☝🏼 of their founding principles is the 1/

7 ways you damage your health by using mobile phones excessively

1. Headaches
2. Inattention
3. Sleep disturbance
4. Temper issues
5. Anxiety
6. Depression
7. Possible brain tumor

A thread 🧵

{Retweet!} Image
A mobile phone uses radiofrequency (RF) radiation to communicate with a nearby base station.

Once the station receives the signal from your phone, it is directed through the landline phone system.

If there's poor network, the phone increases its radiation level to compensate.
On averagely, the level of RF radiation from phones, to which your head is exposed, is about 100 to 1000 times more intense than exposure from base stations.

This means as you use a mobile phone excessively, your head constantly absorbs this RF radiation.

Hmm. Can't read full article 'cos [£] but does it by any chance mention #JBC?

Merging @PHE_uk's "#COVID19 work" with #TestandTrace ain't the same as "scrapping" the entire agency - not even close! So what's the full story?

How, for example, will this new 'National Institute'...
...relate to the (also new*) #HealthProtection Directorate within @DHSCgovuk?

And again, whattabout the secretive spook-run** #JointBiosecurityCentre with its £9 BILLION budget?

*Which surfaced in a job ad about a week ago:

Also, while #Testandtrace may be *branded* "NHS", it isn't.

Check its homepage URL:
i.e. the parts that aren't commissioned out are *already* @PHE_uk.

Canada's #5G rollout

"A larger number of connected devices will result in huge increases in data that need to be stored in energy-intensive #data centres, which are expected to emit more #carbon than the international #aviation industry."

"It also means an exponential increase in the # of wireless networks, which are energy-guzzlers (est. to be 10x less efficient than wired networks). In 2015 alone, the energy used to power wireless networks generated approx. 30 megatonnes of carbon, the same as 4.9 million cars."
"There are no published long-term studies... As one US Senator put it, w/ #5G, “we’re kind of flying blind here, as far as #health & #safety is concerned.” For this reason, 273 #scientists & #doctors in the EU have signed a declaration calling for all 5G [] to be stopped."

Dharpa Grass Significance:

தர்ப்பை புல்லின் மகிமை:


#Dharpagrass #radiation #Thread

தர்ப்பை புல் ஆதியிலிருந்து கிரியை மார்க்கங்களில் இறைவனுக்கும், ஜீவனுக்கும் தொடர்புடைய பாலமாக கருதப்படுகிறது.
தர்ப்பை புல்லின் அடிப்பாகம் பிரம்மனும், மத்தியில் விஷ்ணுவும் , நுனியில் ருத்ரனும் இருப்பதால் பரமபவித்ரமாகிய சுத்த சக்தியயன்று அறிக.

தர்ப்பபை சுபத்தை, புனிதத்தன்மையை தருவது, எல்லா பாவங்களையும் போக்க வல்லது.இந்த புல்லில் அதிகமான தாமிர சத்து உள்ளது.
நமது உடலில் வெளியிலிருந்து உள்ளே புகும் தீமையைத் தடுக்கிறது.

தருப்பைப்புல் புண்ணியபூமி தவிர வேறு எங்கும் முளைக்காது. இதற்கு அக்னிகற்பம் என்பது பெயர். இந்த புல் தண்ணீர் இல்லாவிட்டால் வாடாது. நீருக்குள் பலநாட்கள் இருந்தாலும் அழுகாது. 'அம்ருத வீரியம்' என்பது இதன் பெயர்.

Yes! For example this team showed that exposure to Wi-Fi radiofrequency #radiation for 5 hours modulated E. coli gene expression (52 #genes were upregated, 49 downregulated) 👉 that led to changes in several bacterial cellular + metabolic processes:… ImageImage
2/ This study found that exposure of E. coli #bacteria to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radiofrequency radiation increased their antibiotic resistance and motility 👉 Moreover, #biofilm formation was enhanced in E. coli, S. aureus + Staph epidermis:… ImageImage
3/ It’s worth noting that bacterial communication in #biofilms is partly mediated by ion channel mediated #electrical signaling (even over long distances) 👉 Check out this interview I did w/ UCSD’s Gurol Suel on the topic:… Image

Thread on today's #Russia explosion (this is becoming a habit):
In November 2017, Russia test fired the Burevestnik (SSC-X-9 Skyfall) nuclear-powered cruise missile from it's test location at Pankovo.
Comparison images show the site from the 20th May 2019 appear to be "abandoned". The environmental shelter appears to be gone on the rails. Image courtesy of @ArmsControlWonk shows that this was still present in June 2018.
Today at the Nyonoksa Site on the White Sea an explosion has killed at least 2 people and seriously injured many more. (6 was the last I saw reported). Hazmat team was involved in the evacuation of the wounded and a a small spike in radiation was reportedly detected.

Important paper 👉 They identified several #microbiota components strongly associated w/ white blood cell dynamics☝️Supports the growing reality that we must study the human #immune response in concert w/ the increasing # of #organisms capable of persisting in humans
They also clarify that the #radiation + #chemotherapy administed to hematopoietic cell therapy (HCT) patients can cause loss of #microbiome diversity + commensal microbial families 👉 but microbiome diversity can recover during white blood cell reconstitution Image
That supports a 2nd important trend 👉 #Immunosuppressive treatments can negatively impact microbiome “health”, while supporting the immune response may have the opposite effect (improved #microbiome dynamics)

Wow this is major 👉 In simple terms, infection can change the #electrical properties of #macrophages in a way that eventually directs the white blood cells away from the site of #infection...allowing the escape of the macrophages that contain pathogens
Also, remember this study? 👉 which found that #bacteria in #biofilm communities not only coordinate their own behavior, but also influence the behavior of diverse species at a distance☝️via ion channel mediated long-range electrical signaling:…
And this study 👉 which found that #bacteria in the human gut can generate #electricity☝️The genes that code for this electrical transfer were identified in hundreds of bacterial species, including human pathogens:…
