I was around a friend a day after she took her radiation pill?

Hi I am a bit worried. I met this girl who has thyroid cancer and she took her radiation pill on Wednesday and she told me it was safe to be around her after 8 hours so we met up the next day and went out to lunch. And she gave me a hug and I also went and hung out at her place. After doing a little research I read that they can’t be around anybody for 3 or 4 days. How much danger am I in, and what is going to happen to me? I bit scared right now.
No we didn’t have sex, we hugged and that’s it.

How does the DefenderPad (laptop radiation shield) work?

Does it only shield from radiation coming from the bottom of the laptop, or does it somehow help with radiation coming from the sides and front as well? If my laptop is on a desk, should I still put the shield under it? If I’m most worried about ovarian cancer, would it be better to have the laptop on my lap with the shield under it or on the desk? Which is healthier overall? Thanks!

when were mobile radiation discovered to be harmful to human health?

Why can radioactive fallout on a person’s skin be harmful to people, but the radiation inside a person is safe

For example, if a survivor of a nuclear bombing came to your fallout shelter or basement with radioactive fallout all over him or her, and you thoroughly washed all of the dust off of him or her, won’t his or her own exposure to the fallout have particles radiating out of his body?

If not, then what exactly is radiation sickness — is it the inhaling or injesting of the dust?

I just don’t see how the dust can radiate into our bodies, but human bodies cannot — is it not the chemical reactions of raioactive material in contact with non-radioactive material that causes radiation?

And even if you kept your distance from him or her, wouldn’t the radiation radiate from him, through the air, to you and everywhere else like a chain reaction?

electromagnetic radiation for Food preservation-pros and cons?

It’s being used all over the world from commonly processed foods to organic foods. I just can’t help to think “microwaved food” when I think about electromagnetic radiation. So I’m curious as to what this may mean when it comes to the quality of our food. Microwaved food has shown to be striped of nutrients. (I feel you may as well be eating Mickey D’s). Does electromagnetic radiation for Food preservation do the same thing or is it truly a cure all? Will I get the full potential of an organic grown product not treated with this radiation vs. the food that is?
