Ionizing Radiation

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 24 April 2022

Ionizing radiation is any one of a number of types of rays and particles produced by contaminated material, high-voltage devices, nuclear reactions, and stars. The types that are normally crucial to your health are alpha fragments, beta bits, x rays, and gamma rays. Alpha and beta particles are small, fast-moving bits of atoms that a radioactive atom releases when it becomes another substance. X rays and gamma rays are types of electro-magnetic radiation. These radiation bits and rays carry sufficient energy to knock out electrons from atoms and particles that they strike or pass near. This process is called ionization, which is why this radiation is called "ionizing radiation.
