From time to time the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission produces videos that help explain topics to the general public.  The above video is one of them.  It's 6:48 long and is worth the watch.

Please note the doses of natural radiation and the relationship and values of medical scans for the public.

The whole topic of radiation and the values was often misunderstood by some of the non-professional interveners who asked questions or testified before the Joint Review Panel.

They sometimes mixed up values that were represented in Sieverts or the 1/1000 of a Sievert called a milli Sievert or mSv with the older Curie.  Canadians receive on average 1.8mSv  per year from the natural background radiation.
