What is a Rad?
Hi folks. When discussing radiation exposure, most of the radioactivity measurements are given in Bq/L or mSv. I was digging through some old newspaper clippings I have, and found some articles that hit the national newspapers in 1997. They discussed radiation testing in the 50's and 60's, and said a large percentage of the American population was exposed to 2 Rads of radiation, and specifically named Iodine 131. My question is, how does 2 Rads compare to what we are getting from Japan currently?
