Rep.

The study provides unsettling new insight on the effects of the nuclear fallout after the bomb was dropped; while thousands of people were killed in the initial blast, thousands more suffered at the hands of radiation sickness in the months to follow.Using a technique designed for dating fossils and archaeological artifacts, researchers have analyzed a fragment of a jawbone from a Hiroshima victim, uncovering radiation levels nearly double the fatal dose.Scroll down for videoScientists have calculated how much radiation the people of Hiroshima may have been subjected to after the 1945 bombing, using tissue from one of the victims for the first time. The measurements showed a dose of roughly 9.46 grays (Gy) in the Hiroshima jawbone (shown)The study relied on technique known as electron spin resonance spectroscopy to retrospectively measure the radiation doses Hiroshima victims were exposed to 73 years ago.Up until now, the researchers say, samples of human tissue from the site have never been analyzed for this purpose.The measurements showed a dose of roughly 9.46 grays (Gy) in the Hiroshima jawbone a high dose, according to the team.’About half that dose, or 5 Gy, is fatal if the entire body is exposed to it,’ says Oswaldo Baffa, Full Professor at the University of So Paulo’s Ribeiro Preto School of Philosophy, Science Letters (FFCLRP USP), who supervised the study.The latest work builds upon research started in the 1980s under the leadership of physicist Srgio Mascarenhas, Full Professor at the University of So Paulo (USP).RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 NextMicroplastics can even be found in BEER: Study reveals the.

Somehow, that feels even more profoundly disturbing. And you have to ask: do we have a responsibility? To deny her, for her own good, the attention she’s so desperately seeking?
