So, what the heck's "Health Physics," anyway?



I got curious, so I went looking. Here is a brief excerpt from the introduction
of the Radiation Safety Training Manual and Resource Book, published by the University of Rochester (http://extranet.urmc.rochester.edu/radiationSafety/ .) To be truthful, I found a few passages
unintentionally humorous, in a dark sort of way!



The field of Health Physics was officially born in 1942 when a physicist for the Manhattan Project, Ernest Wollen, was assigned the task of determining the effects of radiation on Project workers, recommending proper techniques to control their exposure, and to develop reliable methods of measuring this exposure. The result was, in the space of just a few years, amassing enough information to found a new profession and to lay the groundwork for years of studies.

Following the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan, Manhattan Project scientists were dispatched to Hiroshima and Nagasaki to study the effects of radiation on humans over both short-term and long-term time frames. Other health physicists covered the atomic and hydrogen bomb tests in Nevada and in the Pacific, studying the effects of the explosions, the immediate radiation, and the fallout on plant and animal life, including their effects on humans. [....


Hey, Doc! Looks like "Leo G. Carroll is over a barrel" again!


.......] From these studies, as well as from accidental releases of fission products and from more laboratory work, our present limits for exposure to radiation and radioactive isotopes were derived. Most of today's exposure and concentration limits are a direct result of the work done by the Manhattan Project health physicists.

There has been more research done on the effects of ionizing radiation than on any toxic substance and there is more known about radiation's effects on humans than about any other harmful agent. It is also interesting to note that, despite radiation's being undetectable to the senses, it is more easily detected in any quantities than virtually any other substance known. Radiation detectors can reliably detect, depending on the isotope, as little as 10
-23 grams of radioactive material. This means that we can detect radiation at levels several orders of magnitude below the lowest levels shown to be harmful.

The standards that we follow and the radiation limits to which we adhere are based upon nearly a century of trial and error. Most of the practices of the past seem ridiculous, antiquated, naive, or just plain stupid with our current knowledge of the effects of radiation and radioactivity. However, without this stupidity and naiveté we might still be blissfully unaware of the potential hazards of radiation. Eben Byers and the radium watch dial painters died prematurely and horribly but their deaths led to studies that emphasized the importance of minimizing body burdens of radium and, by extension, of all radioisotopes. Early radiographers suffered burns which taught them the lessons of time, distance and shielding, the three basic tenets of [radiation] safetyfrom external sources.


LIFE photographer Loomis Dean shot these frames -- mostly previously unpublished until LIFE put them on the internet -- May 16, 1955, back when we did open-air A-Bomb testing. Original cutline: "Scorched, male mannequin in suit of dark fabric indicates a human would be burned but alive."



Hmmmm. "Burned but alive." Hmmmm!
What was it Josey Wales said? "Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy!"



"Hey, Ethel! Look! Scorched BUT alive. Hooray!"

German troops during the Battle of the Marne. Near
the river Marne the German invasion was brought to
a standstill. Picture made in September 1914. This
picture is thought to be staged. The Iron Cross the
soldier in front is wearing, e.g., would not have been
the norm while in action. (By 1916, the showy spike
helmets had been ditched for more practical ones.)





Leslie’s, 1915. Unfortunately, there were three years
of carnage ahead.

Everett Bowman and Skeet Bowman on the way to the 1926 Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo ~



And, Everett was the tie-down roping champion twice at Cheyenne, 1927 & 1935. He also won the steer wrestling in 1935.

Does anybody happen to have a pic of Betty Page dressed in a blouse and long skirt standing near the front of a 56 Corvette? The pic was taken at/near the 1956 New York Auto Show. Thanks
