ALARA – As Low As Reasonably Achievable
The guiding principle of radiation safety is “ALARA”. ALARA stands for “as low as reasonably achievable”. This principle means that even if it is a small dose, if receiving that dose has no direct benefit, you should try your best to avoid it! Three basic protective measures for all radiation safety: time, distance, and shielding.
Previously this principle was indicative to only ionizing radiation, however peer-reviewed science supports that the thermal and non-thermal dividing line currently used as the basis for safety standards for radio frequency radiation exposures are nothing more than a red herring, a distraction from the public’s understanding of the actual health effects attributed to microwave radio frequency radiation exposure and therefore our ability to protect the public. It increasingly appears invalid to distinguish ionizing from non-ionizing radiation with respect to biological effects that apply to RF Radiation (Cell Phones), UVA/UVB Radiation (Sun Rays) and UVC Radiation (Germicidal Lighting).
Quanta X Technology™ leverages human intellect and technological innovation to balance the risk to reward relationship of human EMR exposure when receiving a limited radiation dose has a direct benefit, like when making an important phone call using microwave radiation or sterilizing your smartphone to kill harmful viruses and bacteria using germicidal UVC radiation. Quanta X Technology brands help to assist implementing ALARA’s three basic protective measures for non-ionizing radiation safety of time, distance, and shielding. Quanta X highly advises prudent safety measures are always taken when exposure to microwaves from a wireless device, UVA/UVB light from the sun or UVC radiation used for germicidal lighting.
