Radiation - Health Hazards

Embed Radiation - Health Hazards - Infographic on your site


Health effects caused by exposure to radiation may be classified into two: Stochastic and non-stochastic.

Long-term, low-level (chronic) exposure to radiation may produce stochastic health effects.Stochastic health effects occur by chance and occur years after exposure.Increased levels of exposure do not influence the type or severity of the effect.
Exposure to high levels of radiation leads to non-stochastic health effects. These effects depend on the dose of the radiation the person is exposed to. Greater the exposure, more severe is the damage.
