How to Survive a Nuclear Holocaust

Darby Trimble, Daryl Rutherford, Aaron Brown, Nicole Muro

A nuclear holocaust may soon be upon us, but we can help you survive

We will provide water, food, shelter, oxygen, heat and cooling, and waste management.

Survival from Alpha,Beta and Gamma Rays

Surviving from radiation you will need:

  • consume 5 grams of vitamin C a day.
  • decrease meat consumption.
  • reduce or eliminate dairy products.
  • reduce or eliminate sugar consumption.
  • eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetables.
  • increase fiber consumption.
  • consume iodine.
  • wash down any contaminated areas.
  • wear masks.
  • keep everything sealed.
  • find a clean water source.
  • expose of waste responsibly.
  • when outside wear protective clothing, and cover all skin areas.
  • need radiation detector.

Medical Effects of Radiation Exposure

  • Cancer is the primary effect from radiation
  • Can cause mutations (changes in DNA)
  • Genetic mutations can be passed onto offspring
  • Teratogenic mutations are effects on unborn children, these can include: Smaller head or brain size, poorly formed eyes, abnormally slow growth, and mental retardation
  • Symptoms of radiation sickness: Nausea, weakness, hair loss, skin burns, diminished organ function
  • Death

Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima- Effects

  • Over 90% of people within 500 meters died instantly
  • Most people close to ground zero died immediately or during the first day
  • After 3 or 4 months people suffered from disfiguration, severe scar formations, sterility (both sexes), and psychosomatic disorders
  • Now (over half a century later) victims still suffer from leukemia, A-Bomb cataracts, cancers of the thyroid, breast, lungs, salivary glands, birth defects, mental retardation, fear of birth defects in children, and disfiguring keloid scars (overgrowth of scar tissue on wound surface)

environmental effects of radiation exposure

  • causes pollution so plants cannot grow normally
  • radiation can be fatal to humans & animals
  • effects on reproductive capacity
  • mortality, body weight changes
  • enormous losses in biomass productivity
  • sub freezes temperatures,low light levels

fusion and fission reactions .

Nuclear fusion is when a atomic nucleus is split into 2 or more smaller nuclei.

Nuclear fission is when 2 or more atomic nuclei collide together at a very high speed, to make a new type of nucleus.

When both of these nuclear fusion and fission happen there is a huge explosion that is very dangerous.
