Radiation. Are you worried?

Everyday in the news, it seems there are more warnings about radiation in common items we use everyday. Events like Chernobyl and Fukushima are thankfully, not that frequent. But how much radiation are you getting in your everyday life, and should you be worried about it?

This book is new to the library this month. RADIATION : WHAT IT IS, WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW by Dr. Robert Peter Gale and Eric Lax.  The authors go through a variety of hot topics related to radiation sources, and try to debunk the myths and make sense of what you are really being exposed to. If you’re concerned, drop in and pick up this book or put it on hold. You might be worrying for nothing!

If you’re interested, Time Magazine did a great photo shoot on Chernobyl and what it looks like 25 years after the disaster. You can find the photos here.
