CD V-700 Geiger Counter - Geiger counters are used to detect and measure radioactive alpha and beta particles as well as gamma ray emissions. The counter contains a tube of inert gas that becomes charged when colliding with high energy particles releasing ions that create an electric current. This can be registered on a meter, classically through audible clicks. Radiation can rapidly kill cells; most people are exposed to natural radiation from the sun and background rays of 2-3 millisieverts per year.

Drexel Toxicology Image Library - Ginseng Royal Jelly (refined)
Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is commonly used as a component of traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of respiratory illnesses, GI disorders, impotence, fatigue and stress. The active components are called ginsenosides. Ginseng is associated with ginseng abuse syndrome, which consists of hypertension, anxiety, insomnia and morning diarrhea that occurs after chronic long-term use. This preparation also contains royal jelly, which is a pollen-jelly mixture secreted from bees. The main toxicities associated with royal jelly are related to the pollen, which can produce allergic reactions and anaphylaxis.
