Shower regulrarly, especially after having been outdoors.
Check the food you eat for radiation levels over the next year or so. Eating fruits and vegetables grown indoors oh Hydroponically will have a lesser chance of having been exposed to radiation.
Experts have advised Coup Media that the geiger counter model Victoreen CDV – 717 is a good affordable tool to monitor radiation levels around your home. You may also want to invest in a dosimeter.
Please remember that it is not a good idea to take Potassium Iodide unless it is absolutely eminent that you will be in contact with dangerous levels of radiation or without knowing the radiation levels around you.
