[Radium Bromide (ca. 1960) on Radioactive Quack Cures by ORAU]


These homeopathic triturations containing radium bromide powder were distributed from a pharmacy in Pennsylvania in the 1960s. The "6X" on one bottle, the "8X" on another, and the "18X" on the third indicate the dilution factors of the radium bromide. Note the lead foil on the bottle to the right - that thickness of lead would do next to nothing to reduce the exposure rates associated with radium.
Sizes: (left to right) ca. 4 1/2" high, 8" high and 5 1/2" high.

臭化ラジウムを含むホメオパシー粉末は、1960年代にペンシルバニア州の薬品会社から販売された。ボトルにある"6X", "8X", "18X"は臭化ラジウムの希釈率である。右側のボトルの鉛ホイルは、その厚みではラジウムからの放射線被曝を削減する効果を持っていないに等しい。

Exposure rates: nothing detectable at one foot, but the two small bottles show approximately 4 uR/hr above background at two inches or so.

[Nuka-Cola Quantum by Whatpayne]

In 2077, a new version called Nuka-Cola Quantum was introduced. According to the advertisements, it had twice the calories, twice the carbohydrates, twice the caffeine and twice the taste. To make it stand out more on the shelves and to give it an extra kick, the Quantum included a mild radioactive strontium isotope (and an eighteenth fruit flavor - pomegranate). The effect was a drink that not only boosted your energy, but also glowed with a bright blue light. While no ill effects were recorded by the Food and Drug Association, the isotope also caused the drinker's urine to glow.
