Reactor Concepts Manual Natural and Man-Made Radiation Sources USNRC Technical Training Center Natural and Man-Made Radiation Sources All living creatures, from the beginning of time, have been, and are still being, exposed to radiation. Background radiation is a measure of the level of ionizing radiation present in the environment at a particular location which is not due to deliberate introduction of radiation sources.. Background radiation originates from a variety of sources, both natural and artificial. These include both cosmic radiation and environmental radioactivity from naturally occurring radioactive materials (such.

There are many forms of radiation 3. Some forms of radiation are found in the natural environment and others are due to modern technology 2 r natural or man-made, radiation can be both harmful and beneficial to the environment 2 sun, for example can have positive and negative effects on plant and animal life. Terrestrial Radiation. The Earth itself is a source of terrestrial radiation. Radioactive materials (including uranium, thorium, and radium) exist naturally in soil and rock. Essentially all air contains radon, which is responsible for most of the dose that Americans receive each year from natural background sources. In addition, water contains.

  Natural ways to reduce radiation load in your body These are some simple ways for everyone to reduce exposure and radiation load: • Introduce more chlorophyll-rich foods into your diet, such as seaweed, kelp, blue-green algae, spirulina, and chlorella.   Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a form of non-ionizing radiation that is emitted by the sun and artificial sources, such as tanning beds. The beneficial effects of UV radiation include the production of a vital nutrient, vitamin D; however, overexposure may present risks.

The comprehensive coverage includes compounds (e.g. arsenic, lead), gases (e.g. hydrogen sulphide, ozone) and all forms of natural radiations (e.g. heat, radon). Readers will find this book both informative and entertaining because facts and important data are introduced and interpreted in the form of history, stories and scientific summaries.

A more detailed account of natural radiation can be found in Eisenbud and Gesell (), which was used as a guide to prepare parts of this chapter. Natural radiation comprises cosmic radiation and the radiation arising from the decay of naturally occurring radionuclides.

Radiation has always been a natural part of our environment. Natural radioactive sources in the soil, water and air contribute to our exposure to ionizing radiation, as well as man-made sources resulting from mining and use of naturally radioactive materials in power generation, nuclear medicine, consumer products, military and industrial applications.

Naturally Occurring Radiation. Naturally occurring radiation can be found all around us. Radiation can be found in soils, in our air and water, and in us. Because it occurs in our natural environment, we encounter it every day through the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. It is also in building materials and items we.
