When they stepped out of the car the last time, the radiation was about 45 times the amount that sets off the "Jesus Christ get out of there" alarm.

Alright someone help me out. I'm looking up radiation measurements and the online information is all over the place; one says a lethal does is 5 Sv while another says 1000 is radiation sickness.

There's this: http://cl.ly/2V3c33023U0Y1e0s2X0T

Unfortunately the citation for that is "some dude on reddit" but you can find plenty of debate and other sources in the comments here:

xkcd posted what appears to be an excellent chart explaining radiation doses: http://xkcd.com/radiation/

A radiologist friend of mine confirms that 5+ Sv is generally considered a fatal dose (assuming you trust her) Her guess is that whatever source said that 1,000 Sv results in radiation sickness probably meant 1,000 mSv, which = 1 Sv.

dichotic1
oh ok, that makes sense seeing that they were reading levels of +/- 92 mSv/h.

dichotic1
oops, no I'm wrong 92uSv/h

According to my calculations, it would take ~ 3 weeks of living in the final place where they got out, 1.5km from the plant, to be at a statistically significant higher risk for cancer.

It would take almost 8 months of living at that close proximity to suffer from mild radiation sickness (headache, increased risk of infection).

A few more months, and you will begin to die. Nausea, and fatigue are more symptoms. Even if you the leave zone, there's still a 10% chance that you'll drop dead within a month.

If you're made of steel, and you're somehow still alive after two and a half years, you will be hairless and permanently sterile.

My calculations don't indicate at which point you turn into a ghoul.

Those dogs seem well fed. I guess there's plenty of dead animals and humans to eat.

Sadly, you're right.
