Did you know about radiation, where it is present and how to protect yourself?
Radiation is energy given off by matter in the form of rays or high-speed particles. There are many familiar forms of radiation, for example light, heat, microwaves, radio and television every day. Doctors use x-rays to see inside our body and in medicine, radioactive materials are used for diagnostics and therapeutic purposes.
Radiation protection is the science and practice of protecting people and the environment from the harmful effect of ionizing radiation. For the same reason we need to be careful around an open flame or a knife, we need to be aware of radiation. Used and store properly, a knife an prepare and allow you to consume food, however if it is misused, it can cause injury and in extreme cases, death. Similarly when handled correctly, radioactive materials have many beneficial uses, however if misused it can pose significant danger. Ionization can cause damage to cells, which can eventually lead to life threatening illnesses like cancer.
