I can help myself very well, thank you very little.
However, if you wanted to verify what has been said here, you could
learn a slight amount about the subject and build right in your very own
home instruments to measure any radiation that might be a problem.
Anything up through microwaves is trivial though you really need to make
a couple or three very simple instruments that will respond to fields
that are too small to be dangerous. Above that, a bolometer which can be
made from a 1/200 amp fuse and a few other parts extends the measurement
range to near infrared. Detectors for infrared through UV are no
brainers. X-rays and quite a bit higher can be measured with a trivially
simple ionization chamber. Photographic film is also good for all
ionizing radiation and then some.
It is so simple to measure radiation using cheap and easy to find parts,
that you should be doing your homework and building these instruments.
Unfortunately, if you built them, you would probably come to this group
and grump about how they don't work because they don't detect fantasies
at all well.
