How much of a radiation dose do I get from….?

After Japan was hit by a massive earth quake and their nuclear power plants in shambles, the rest of the world has nothing to do but sit and wait.
What will the effects on the world be?
Radiation Dose
Will I get an extra dose of radiation here in the US thanks to the leaks?
We are so often left to the mercy of the media!
This chart, it really gives us a realistic look at the simple sources of radiation around us and how much we are actually exposed to on a daily basis.
I was shocked to see how much of a radiation dose a woman gets from a mammogram and yet it is a part of routine health care as we age.
