Actually Ionizing radiation is the easiest to deal with. A sheet
of tinfoil will cover the problem + it generally will not penetrate
the skin(which is dead anyway) unless you happen to be in
physical contact with the source.
Neutrons are not ionizing radiation.
Neither is gamma.
Both are potentially more dangerous than the ionizing kind
because they will penetrate. OTOH on the up side the
probability that they will interact with something internal
to you is fairly low.

I presume you are one of the immortals?
Or that you can *stop* people from dying?
Perhaps you would be so kind as to share your secret with us.
If there is a 1 in a 1,000,000,000 chance of something
happening to you it happens to 6 people a day.
