Medical Effects of Radiation Damage

DC 1:blood & haematic organs principally affected. Military exposure category RS-1
DC 2:make CON roll or vomiting; fatigue; exposure category RS-2 (to 150 rads) and RS-3 (over 150 rads)
DC 3:vomiting, hair loss, bleeding, cataracts (if caused by medium radiation), female sterility, convalesce for a few weeks; 25% fatalities
DC 4:male sterility, leukemia, cataracts regardless of radiation type; convalesce for a few months; 60% fatalities in general population
DC 5:GI tract is prin. affected; prostration, anorexia, diarrhea, fever; convalesce for several months; 99% fatalities in general population
DC 7:coordination loss begins as central nervous system becomes principal organ affected; convalesce for a year or two at least
DC 8:stupor, convulsions, and (almost certainly) death.
