New R2L Radiation Buster microprocessor converts radiation from cell phone and smart phones to harmless light. McKinney, TX (PRWEB) April 10, 2013 R2L today announces that its new R2L Radiation Buster device, a paper-thin microprocessor that reduces cell phone and smart phone radiation by as much as 70%, is now available to consumers. The R2L automatically converts radiation from mobile phones into electricity then discharges the electricity as harmless light. By attaching the R2L to the...

No Side Effects With New Cancer Radiation Treatment
2013-04-03 18:51:30

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists have developed a new form of radiation therapy that successfully put cancer into remission in mice. The new treatment did not produce any harmful side effects typically seen with conventional chemo and radiation cancer therapies. The team says clinical trials in humans could begin as soon as funding is secured. “Since the 1930s, scientists have sought success with a cancer treatment known as boron neutron...

Breast Cancer Radiotherapy Raises Risk Of Heart Disease Slightly
2013-03-15 09:09:17

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Doctors have known for quite a while that radiation treatment for breast cancer increases a woman's risk of heart disease, but the extent of that additional risk was unknown. A new study, published in a recent online issue of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), further explains those risks. The New York Times reports that a new study led by the University of Oxford's Clinical Trial Service Unit (CTSU) offers a way to estimate...

Biomedical Optics Express research details how terahertz pulses that destroy skin tissue at the same time increase tumor-suppressing proteins Terahertz (THz) radiation, a slice of the electromagnetic spectrum that occupies the middle ground between microwaves and infrared light, is rapidly finding important uses in medical diagnostics, security, and scientific research. As scientists and engineers find evermore practical uses for this form of radiation, questions persist about its...

-Currently, doctors have no way to accurately measure damage to the body soon after a person is exposed to ionizing radiation. -It is therefore difficult to know whether a person is likely to suffer serious effects after an occupational or accidental exposure. -This animal study shows that radiation exposure alters the levels of certain small molecules in the blood, perhaps offering a reliable measure of damage to the body. Ohio State University cancer researchers have identified...

Nuclear Fallout
2013-04-01 10:26:30

Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
