For X-rays, beta rays, and gamma rays, 1 millirad is equal to 1 millirem, but for alpha particles, 1 ruillirad is equal to 20 millirems.

Published Date: April 26, Mammography (also called mastography) is the process of using low-energy X-rays (usually around 30 kVp) to examine the human breast for diagnosis and screening. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses or microcalcifications.

As with all X-rays, mammograms use doses of ionizing radiation to create The purposes of this study of natural radiation exposure in the United States were to better esti- mate population dose from radiation of natural origin, to investigate the DE variations that occur, and to examine the parameters that influ- ence both the levels and the variations so that the relative importance of manmade exposures can be.

The evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like ionizing radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental Population exposure to X-rays etc.

Farmers can reduce soil loss dramatically by planting rows of trees as windbreaks, by using techniques that minimize the amount of plowing and tilling needed to control weeds, by planting crops in strips that follow the contour of hillsides, by avoiding excess irrigation, by adding organic material in the form of manures, and, soon after a harvest, by planting cover crops that are plowed in.
