I run pencil dosimeters through our x-ray machines here on a quarterly
basis and they average 1.5mr/pass. If the equipment they use is similar,
this issue is moot.

Hold the door for the stranger behind you. When the driver in the
lane signals to get over, slow down. Smile and say "hi" to the folks you

pass on the sidewalk. Give blood. Volunteer.
