It is clear that eating uranium is not a good idea, it is just a funky spikenard-math exercise, but how many calories does uranium have?
There are two ways of looking at this, first how much energy something contains, and second how much energy a person can get from ingesting something. The second is the most used definition when it comes to measuring food, if you eat uranium you will not eat much, rather you will die of cancer.
But that does not mean that uranium has no energy, moreover, it contains a lot of energy concentrated in just one gram, about 18 million kilocalories per gram (the kCal we use in food), 18,000 million calories (the usual energy ).
18,000 million! If we were able to feed ourselves with this energy source, with an intake of about 2500 kCal per day as recommended, we would have the energy for about 22 years.
How many calories are there in 1kg of uranium?
If uranium has 18 million kilocalories per gram (the kCal we use in food), Which means in 1 kilogram has 18 billion kilocalories.
What would happen if you ate a gram of uranium?
Now, in reality, a gram of uranium has 0 calories, it is super light! well, not exactly light in the sense of weight but in the sense that it is not found in an organic molecule that we can assimilate.
It is like eating a screw, also energetically it must be much higher than a breaded, but the body cannot process it so it is discarded directly.
But it is light in another sense, that gram of uranium will pass through all your tissues most vulnerable to radiation, at the end of its journey it is highly likely that you will develop cancer of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, intestines, colon, everything. All well broken enough to quickly lose weight to a skeleton.
Inhaling large concentrations of uranium can cause lung cancer from exposure to alpha particles. Uranium is also a toxic chemical, meaning that ingestion of uranium can cause kidney damage from its chemical properties much sooner than its radioactive properties would cause cancers of the bone or liver.
Is it safe to eat uranium?
Eating enormous doses of uranium would be very dangerous; if you consumed 25 milligrams of it, you did instantly start to experience kidney damage, and anywhere past 50 milligrams could cause complete kidney failure and even death.
Avoid uranium diets, your body is not a nuclear reactor, it is also a bit expensive and you probably have the authorities chasing you for wanting to renew your figure
