Radiation is energy that travels through space in the form of waves or particles. There are two types of radiation: ionizing and non-ionizing.
Ionizing radiation has enough energy to break chemical bonds between molecules or to form charged molecules (cause ionization). This means that ionizing radiation is strong enough to damage cells and DNA and strong enough to increase the chance of developing cancer.
Sources of ionizing radiation exposure include:
Non-ionizing radiation isn’t as strong as ionizing radiation, and it doesn’t have enough energy to break bonds between molecules. But being exposed to some types of non-ionizing radiation can still harm you.
Sources of non-ionizing radiation exposure include:
