Small Doses of Radiation Linked to Cancer

According to the Environmental Protective Agency (EPA), small amounts of radiation can be linked to an increase in cancer. According to the EPA, exposure to one 1 rem of ionizing radiation in small doses over a lifetime will increase your risk of getting cancer. To put this in perspective, most people receive about 3 tenths of a rem (300 mrem) every year typically in the form of radon. There has been a lot of debate recently about the underutilization of safety measures for individuals exposed to radiation (much of which is in the work place). Med-Pro, Inc. is an advocate for radiation monitoring for those exposed to any amount of radiation over 300 mrem. Dosimetry badges (tld badges) have proven to be the industry standard for passive radiation detection. Let us partner with you to safeguard your employees and your business.
