As a Radiation Therapist how exposed are you really to the radiation?

I am currently deciding my major and a Radiation Therapist sounds like a fun and easy going job i can do and make people happy even in the most depressed moments. I wanted to know are you really exposed to that much radiation, that you can possibly die within 5-10 years? im kind of oblivious to this field and want to know more. Anything would help but thats my main question. If you would like to answer about schooling, tuition, salary, hours, days youd have to work, anything itd be nice to know! thanks

Occupational exposure to radiation is heavily regulated and controlled. Provided everything is done by the book, as it is in medical settings, your exposure will be well within safe limits. You have nothing to be concerned about this this respect.
