What is radiation?
Radiation is an unstable nucleus which emits excess energy as radiation which is the form of gamma rays or fast-moving subatomic particles.
Low levels of radiation aren’t dangerous whereas medium and high levels are. Medium levels of radiation can cause sickness, headaches, vomiting and fever. High levels of radiation can kill you and cause internal organ damage and cancers. High level of radiation will fry your internal organs.
