What is radiation?
Radiation is energy that is transmitted in the form of waves or streams of particles. It is present everywhere in our environment.
Ionizing radiation includes the radiation that comes from both natural and man-made radioactive materials such as cosmic rays, nuclear power plants, and X-ray machines.
Non-ionizing radiation is a lower energy radiation such as radio waves, ultraviolet rays, microwaves, and sunlight.
