Protection Shields will
help you to decrease the danger of scattered radiation.
Radiation acts primarily by inducing DNA damage in human
cells. The United Nations Scientific Committee on the
Effects of Atomic Radiation indicates that disposition of
energy in DNA due to being radiated is likely to cause
pertaining mutations. Even the lowest doses of radiation may
induce DNA mutations, the origin of cancer development.
Though the human cell has a repair mechanism for damaged
DNA, this repair process is not completely error-free. In
some adverse cases, the repair mechanism occurs incorrectly.
In addition to the carcinogenic effects of radiation
exposure, the committee also considers a risk of developing
hereditary diseases, due to DNA damage in germ cells. It
must be assumed that any amount of radiation may pose a risk
of developing one of the many effects of radiation exposure,
with no specified threshold below which the dose is
considered to be safe.
Other biological effects of ionizing radiation occur
upon long-term exposure to high doses of radiation. These
effects involve changes at the molecular level, leading to
organ and tissue damage, including anemia, skin damage and
