How Can You Prevent Radiation Exposure?

 When we witnessed the cruelty of the Russian invaders in Ukraine, the world was forever altered. Ten years ago, if you brought up the potential of a nuclear attack, people would laugh in your face and assume you were mentally unstable. Now, more and more individuals are beginning to understand how to protect themselves against the effects of a potential nuclear calamity, particularly in Ukraine and Europe.

Let's hope that nobody ever needs this information, but because knowledge is power, here's what you do in case they do.

Priorities come first

1) Remain indoors if you are. If not, go under shelter right away. On the ground, on roofs, and on walls, radioactive material condenses. Avoid interacting with the outside world as much as you can.

2) Keep any pets you have indoors. They shouldn't play in the radioactive meadow.

3) Close all windows and doors, and use moist towels to plug any crevices.

4) Ascertain that you have enough food to last a few days. Place everything in sealed containers and conceal it in the freezer or another cool location.

5) To protect the lungs, prepare a bandage made of cotton gauze, a face mask, or a respirator.

6) Maintain your position and watch for any additional orders from the State Emergency Service, police enforcement, or other authorities. Go outside only if you have no other option and nothing else.

Basic radiation protective measures

Keep these guidelines in mind if you want to spend some time outside (for evacuation or medical assistance):

1) Put on rubber boots, gloves, a raincoat, and a respirator.

2) Avoid stripping off in public, touching the ground, grass, shrubs, or trees, and whatever you do, avoid swimming or using outside water for washing.

3) Carefully take off your outer layer of clothing when you get home to avoid shaking the radioactive dust off. The garment should be stored in an airtight bag or container as far away from humans and animals as you can.

4) If at all feasible, wash your head in the shower while using soap. Use only the shampoo; skip the conditioner. Never scrape or rub the skin.

5) If taking a shower isn't an option, wash all exposed skin with running water, paying specific attention to your face, eyes, and ears. In a pinch, moist wipes or cloth will also work.

6) Don clean clothing now that you are clean.

What should I consume in the event of a radiation accident?

It's important to keep in mind that not all food is suitable for consumption during a nuclear emergency.

1) Only ingest pure water. Tap water is not recommended, but if you come across a safe, clean well, make sure to fill your bottles.

2) You need to maintain a constant supply of water that is safe to drink because boiling does not reduce radiation. As long as it was in a container, any water would work as long as it wasn't radioactive.

3) Food that has been hermetically sealed in a jar or another container is safe to consume. It's also possible to use food from the refrigerator or freezer, so it wouldn't hurt to stock up on some very healthy snacks. Oh, and clean the packaging with a moist towel or cloth before opening it. Put that fabric in a plastic bag afterwards and hide it somewhere unreachable.
