There are many risks with radiation, and the dangers of each type of exposure may differ, but they are dangers none-the-less. Radiation exposure can cause a number of health concerns, most specifically damage to cell tissue, including cancer.

It happens like this: ● Your cells’ energy is used for radiation protection instead of metabolism. The cell membranes harden, keeping essential nutrients out and keeping waste products in. ● The waste accumulating inside the cells provides an increased concentration of free radicals, leading to interruption of DNA repair. ● Cell death is a result, releasing micronuclei from the disrupted DNA repair in between cells where they are free to replicate. This is the likely mechanism that contributes to cancer growth.

Risks associated with radiation: ● DNA damage ● Stress ● Compromised immune system ● ADHD ● Cancer in children ● Promotes breast cancer ● Childhood obesity ● Asthma ● Tumors ● Headaches ● Memory issues ● Heart problems
