Radioactivity, or ionizing radiation, is often seen as a central problem and risk of nuclear power. But we humans are, on average, poor at estimating and comparing risks. This is why it’s good to put the health effects of radiation, and especially radiation due to nuclear power, in proper context.

Radioactivity is everywhere, including us humans. So technically, even our smiling faces spread ionizing radioactivity to the surroundings. Our bodies are radioactive because of radioactive isotopes we get for example from our food and drink. But how radioactive are we? Where does our daily radioactive dose come from?

Fennovoima’s OHS team at the construction site is a ”three-man-show” at the moment: OHS Manager Olli-Pekka Pirilä, OHS Specialist Satu Sonkajärvi and Summert Trainee Jesse Hakala. A valuable addition to their team is also Mikko Lehtelä, Joint Occupational Safety Delegate, who works closely with them on a daily basis.

We all are stars of yesterday. You and me both are made of matter that was created in ancient stars and supernovas. Carbon, and all heavier atoms, were created in these explosions which also spread them around the universe. Uranium, the mineral used as fuel in nuclear power reactors, is one of these.
