What is Radiation?

Radiation and healthIonizing radiation is any one of numerous types of rays and particles given off by radioactive material, high-voltage equipment, nuclear reactions, and even the stars above.

The kinds that have an impact on your health are alpha particles, beta particles, x-rays, and gamma rays.

Alpha and beta particles are tiny, quick-moving portions of atoms that a radioactive atom gives off when it morphs into another substance.

X-rays and gamma rays are different kinds of electromagnetic radiation. These rays and particles carry enough energy to knock out electrons from molecules and atoms  (like water, protein, and DNA) that they hit or pass near.

This process is called ionization, which is why this radiation is called “ionizing radiation.”
