Current Status of Living Radiation and Countermeasures



The ‘Radon bed scandal’ that has recently caused is a hot potato in our society but we haven't found the right solution yet.




Radon is a typical radioactive decay product, but we are in a situation where everyone is at risk for radiation. Seoul YWCA had a lecture to know what the radiation is in our everyday life. In the lecture, Instructor Hye Jung Kim focused on ion products, cell phones, and medical radiation problems.

She started her lecture by mentioning the Radon bed scandal. Put simply, Using Radon bed make people exposed to radiation continuously while sleeping in bed without notice. The most miserable thing is that Radon bed has received more than 10 government certificates because they are known as an eco-friendly bed which is not true. In fact, it was a terrible product that caused a cancer.




The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is advising us to throw ion products away from you. Do you know that cell phones also have radiation? Studies show that cell phones cause brain cancers, heart, and other cancers. If an adult uses a cell phone for more than 30 minutes a day, the risk of brain cancer doubles.

For the last session in the lecture, we dealt with the harm of medical radiation such as X-rays and CT scans. If it is unnecessary, do not have immoderate scans.
The more you get scans, the more you are exposed to radiation.

If you once are exposed, it is impossible to get rid of them for a long time. That’s how important you have to avoid exposure as much as possible.

Seoul YWCA hopes you to live a healthier and safer life. : D
