Why is it difficult to determine the effects of radiation on humans?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the reason for difficulty in detecting effect of radiation on human.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama decay.

In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-). In gamma decay, nuclide will remain same to the original one.

Explanation

The particle may generated form fission reaction may results in creation of radiation which affects the person present in the surrounding environment.

These fission reaction may result in production of these radiation which causes severed diseases such as cancer or brain tumor a...
