This is insane comparsion at best.
Radiation dose absorbed by exam using X-rays range from 0.01 mRems for Skull (0.000 01 rem) to 0.7 mRems for pelvis (0.000 7 rem).
Radiation dose delivered by Van Allen belts are at around 300 to 11 666 rems/h.
Now that is 1 166 600 000 higher dose!
Now according to NASA, they are "in the belts" for a hour to the voyage to the Moon and hour back. Given the fact, that even after absorbing 10 rem in two days you have only a even chance to survival, this alone bust Apollo definitively
And you won't have to trust me about it, from it's discovery it was known that the Van Allen belts and radiation in space in general are the showstopers for manned flights thru aby beyond them. Explorer 1 geigercounter was overhelmed by the radiation levels up there, so at altitude nearly 900km it give up.
So, if equipment to measure radiation level is jammed by enormous radiation, what does that tell you? You can't be there at all. They have to shield the next geigercounter with lead to make it work farer that the first one, but even the second one jammed - just in higher altitude.
I recommend you to research first, so you won't claim such scheer nonsense, as comparing dose 1 166 600 000 higher to skull X-ray
At least read Van Allen article:
Van Allenovy radiation belts
"the human body will have to be shielded from this radiation, even on a rapid transit through the region"
"Since a human being exposed for two days to even 10 roentgens would have only an even chance of survival, the radiation belts obviously present an obstacle to space flight."
