Radiation Detection and Safety Limit Check for Predominantly Used Leaves in Traditional Medicine
Binu Abraham, Purvee Bhardwaj, and Sunil Kumar Garg
This investigation was directed to towards purely finding the radiation level in mango leaves in a small town in Maharashtra, namely Devlali. The process involved sun drying the sample for two days, crushing the leaves in a mixer and checking for radiation levels after placing in standardized container with an intention to maintain area of radiation, using a Geiger Muller(GM) tube. Further the GM tube was hovered over the sample area at the distance in observation. The process with the same samples was repeated after duration of 10 days to check for reduction in emission from the same.Due to the nature of the use of the mango leaves here, the radiation intensity was checked from small proximities. The conclusion drawn showed radiation very well within safety limits which imply yet another reason to follow and use herbal medicines from India.
