Whoever drank, they all survived
Mykola KOTLYARCHUK, lecturer at the Department of Disaster Medicine and Military Medicine at Lugansk State Medical University, lieutenant colonel of the medical service:
I can judge by the fate of my own brother, who, being the head of the construction team, participated in the liquidation of the accident at ChNPP. Arriving in Chernobyl, his team had with them a large supply of forty degrees. So, the subsequent events showed that those of the team members who regularly drank vodka for two months of work in the disaster zone are practically without exception alive today. Those who ignored such "prevention", for the most part, lived a little ...
Radiation It is considered that any radiation is deadly. Large doses kill immediately, and small doses - gradually, as they accumulate. As for large doses, no one argues with this. But the fact that small doses of radiation are also harmful is very, very doubtful. Here are some facts. A strange thing was noticed by Japanese scientists, who have been observing fellow citizens who underwent the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki for more than fifty years. It is assumed that those who did not get into the zone of direct irradiation and received a small dose of radiation will also die out every last one. However, the opposite happened - these people became even healthier. They are better at resisting infections and have less leukemia and colorectal cancer than the rest of the country's population. This allowed Japanese scientists to declare that the mortality rate among people who received a small dose is “abnormally low.”
Lymphocytes were taken from people who survived the atomic bombing of Japan and received small doses of radiation. It turned out that the weak radiation activated the immune system. Interestingly, the inhabitants of the region in China, where the natural radioactive background is twice as high as in neighboring regions, turned out to be more immune-resistant than the neighbors.
And not so long ago in the State Research Center preventive medicine (Moscow) conducted an examination of the liquidators of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Most of them were men 40-45 years old. The control group included men of the same age who had never been in areas of increased radioactivity. No discrepancies were found for cancer. That is, the liquidators of the Chernobyl accident do not get cancer more often than other groups of the population.
Another fact that refutes the generally accepted point of view is the discovery of stimulation of plant development by pre-sowing irradiation of seeds. French scientist Planell, American Lucca and Russcue Alexander Kuzin in experiments with protozoa, plants and mice proved that the average level of natural radiation is no more dangerous for all living things than gravity or atmospheric pressure. They note that with increasing doses, stimulation of life processes arises and grows, then there is a wide neutral band, and only iota does the damaging effect of radiation begin. In fact, this is another manifestation of a general biological law, long used in homeopathy: poison in small doses turns into medicine.

my school chemistry teacher told me that some of his comrades from among the liquidators of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant miraculously survived their fellow soldiers for decades just because they jammed alcohol! not to be confused with vodka
Ethyl alcohol is a weak radioprotector, absorbed before (!) irradiation, it is able to somewhat reduce the dose received, but it will not work out with vodka.
VODOCAS FOR THIS STALKER !!!
No, it won't save
No. It seems to me that a similar myth is supported by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. There was vodka "Cossacks", which removed radiation from the body. In general, it is forbidden to smoke, drink and eat in contaminated areas so that radionuclides do not enter the body with food. More details can be found in the document "Radiation Safety Standards".
Yes, really. My relative was a participant in the elimination of the consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. According to him, it was imperative to drink vodka, those who did not die very quickly. So this is not a myth, but why I do not know exactly vodka.
As far as I know, the principle of operation of radioprotectors is based on dehydration. Perhaps this is where the popularity of this myth lies, because in the morning after drinking vodka you want to drink some water.
No, but also 4l3n will grow. The Japs were bored and they decided to shoot an advertisement. And in the beginning there was a word. And the Word was "Wicked American!" (Read with an accent) And when the Pendoses dropped the bomb in 1945, the Japs got drunk, but they ran out of it because they had run out of advertising. Of course, I am not a writer, but I am mentally retarded, I am fashionable
There is indeed some data on the antioxidant protection of ethanol (in particular, such studies have been carried out in rats), but to protect against radiation, it is worth using drugs with antioxidant protection that are less toxic to the body.
No. With radiation sickness will not help for sure. As for the protection of cells from free radicals, which are obtained due to the action of radiation, this is also a myth.

In short: to neutralize them, substances with sulfhydryl groups (SH) are used - their common name is aminothiols. They are used in radioprotective drugs.
Vodka is definitely not one of them.
