I bet Mrs. Curry sure would have liked this information. Some lessons just need to be learned the hard way. Alfred Nobel could have used a guide like this, or at least his brother could have. Just need to give a shout out to all that have given their lives to better the scientific knowledge of all mankind. Little attention is given to these heroes…
My Girlfriend is Radiation Protection Officer, I would love to find a copy of this book! It would make for a funny gift.
Didn’t they used to drink Radium as cure all in the old days? At least until they noticed peoples jaws falling off. Sorry about how I mixed Mrs. Curie’s name up with an Asian spice. My bad.
They didn’t just drink it, it was shoved into just about every orifice in some way or another. I have seen some of the “medical” devices that were used and they are scary.
