I came up with 1027.2.  I think this had something to do with the x-ray question.  Our dentists takes 18 x rays for the initial portfolio.

Residents of Ramsar Iran recieve 55 to 200 times the world average of 300 mr/yr due to Ra-226. Some residents recieve several times the annual occupational radiation worker dose limits.

this is one of the items i wuz spouting this weekend while "discussing" radiation with a orchestra musician ina bar.  he kept telling me tht radiatio caused cancer.  i replied with the standard percentile increase of incidence per dose.  he lit off.  i followed 'n passed him up in ascension.  what fun! ;)  he left the joint in a snit, when i axed how many cancers he had in his mouth, what with all his dental exposure.  a grand time was had by all, 'n the barmaid gave me a black 'n tan on the house.  apparently i wuzn't the first patron he had spouted off on, simply the last. ;D

Below is a list of annual exposures from various sources in alphabetical order. Try to list them in ascending order of exposure. I will post the order and exposures in a week or so. The answers I provide are subject to interpretation (mine) and all comments on them are welcome and will be ignored in the order that they are recieved (just kidding).


1) Astronaut making one shuttle mission each year.

2) Cigarettes, smoking 1.5 packs a day.

3) Ionization Smoke detector in the home.

4) Living within 50 miles of a coal powered electrical generating plant.

5) Living within 50 miles of a nuclear powered electrical generating plant.

6) Nuclear power plant worker (average).

7) Radium dial alarm clock next to the bed.

8 ) Sleeping next to your spouse 8 hours a night.

9) X-ray technologists (average).

Excellent assuming you were listing them in desending order of exposure. Cigarettes do top the list and the rest though not in the exact order that I have are all within a position or two of mine. You clearly have a good grasp of relative exposures. Give yourself a silver star.

I know this is an old post. But I had to try the calculator any way. Over the last 30 years I have only about 8,000 mrem lifetime. Thanks to my doctors I now recieve 10,0229 mrem per year. And I even quit smoking. >:(

According to the calculator, I will receive 632 mrem this year (non-occupationally).  Of course, the calculator does not take into account any traveling by car for extended stays in various parts of the country.  It does makes my 25+ Rem lifetime seem pretty good (only 25% more than my "natural background" dose for the same period).  Must've been them steam generator walls shielding me from all that nasty background radiation in the good old days (laughing).
