Radiation and health outcomes

The effect radiation has on human health has been the subject of recent interest. Many studies have indicated that exposure to radiation has adverse health outcomes with excessive radiation doses being linked to lung, breast, thyroid, rectal, bone and skin cancer among others. On the other hand radiation is important in promoting health being used in diagnosis with X-rays, radioisotopes and CT scans and also in deep X-ray treatment for cancer. Without radiation there would also be no cell phones, less energy generation and no microwave cookers.

We therefore have to strike a balance and ask:
