Sept. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  The latest educational video discusses ways people can protect their indoor environments in the event of a dirty bomb attack.  

A dirty bomb is a mixture of explosives and radioactive materials. It is meant to spread radioactive materials into the area surrounding a blast.  Many experts believe that the radioactive materials used in a dirty bomb would probably not create enough radiation exposure to cause immediate serious illness, except to those people who are very close to the blast site. However, the radioactive dust and smoke can spread and could be dangerous to people’s health if it is inhaled.

“Because people cannot see, smell, feel, or taste radiation, people should take immediate steps to protect themselves and their families in these types of situations,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Low levels of radiation exposure, like those expected from a dirty bomb situation, may not cause any immediate symptoms so it is important to be cautious. We hope this video helps to educate people about how to protect themselves if this type of terrorist attack ever occurs.”
