Radiation Levels Visualized Side-By-Side (INTERACTIVE)

Posted: Updated:

Inspired by the radiation levels graphic at XKCD, the Huffington Post created our own interactive visualization comparing radiation levels.

How much radiation do you get from eating a banana? How about living in a stone, brick or concrete building for a year? How about from a chest CT scan? Moreover, how do these levels compare to Japan's nuclear crisis and the most threatening levels of radiation?

Click through to interact and see the different radiation levels. Rollover to see levels.

CORRECTION: Due to a mathematical error, we initially displayed the incorrect proportions for the circles. We have since fixed the error.
