Accelerometer Tolerances to Magnetic Fields and Radiation

I am working on a project that requires me to detect and measure magnetic fields with a Raspberry Pi. However, the project will operate within a 10 tesla field. As part of this project, I need to include an accelerometer to keep track of the kit's movements. 

 

I found some accelerometers from Adafruit with accelerometers from Analog Devices, such as the ADXL335, the ADXL345, the ADXL326, and the ADXL377. Will there be any issues if they were to be subjected to a very large magnetic field? Will they work properly without being destroyed?

 

Also, if they work, are there any variants of the devices that are radiation-hardened? The kit may be subjected to radiation, so having a variant that is radiation-hardened will be very helpful.
