Radioactive Pollution OPTIONAL MODULE - 1 Notes We live in an environment of natural radiations there is a certain amount of radioactive Environmental Chemistry radiations almost everywhere on the earth. These are only rarely harmful as the radiation level is generally quite low. This small level of radioactive radiation which is present. Specialists in Radiation Safety. Environmental Radiation. Fact Sheet. Adopted: January Sources of Background Radiation. Background radiation (which scientists call ubiquitous background radiation) is emitted from both natural and human-made radioactive chemicals (radionuclides). Some naturally occurring radionuclides are found in the.
Radiation can damage living tissue by changing cell structure and damaging DNA. The amount of damage depends upon the type of radiation, its energy and the total amount of radiation absorbed. Also, some cells are more sensitive to radiation. Because damage is at the cellular level, the effect from small or even moderate exposure may not be. Environmental radiation. Radiation has always been a natural part of our environment. Natural radioactive sources in the soil, water and air contribute to our exposure to ionizing radiation, as well as man-made sources resulting from mining and use of naturally radioactive materials in power generation, nuclear medicine, consumer products, military and industrial applications. EPA sets limits on environmental radiation from use of radioactive elements. The Radiation Protection website describes EPA's radiation protection activities, . Plant Growth. Natural radiation is often beneficial to plant growth is necessary for many plants to receive some form of non-ionizing radiation 3. Radiation that produces light in order for photosynthesis to occur is a positive effect that radiation has on plant life 3. However, according to the Environmental Literacy Council, ionized radiation that occurs from nuclear material may result.
