Although this interesting chart made for the rest of us, can seem to be complicated at first sight, you should give it a try. It’s actually very easy to understand. Just start reading on top left at the blue squares, then to the greens on top right and then the red ones.

This radiation dose chart is for general education use only, not for safety procedures!

Wishing all the best and strong health to the people of Japan
