Radioactive Iodine (Radiation Sickness)


About

Radiation sickness occurs as a result of exposure to too much radiation. Cancer, mental retardation, cataracts, etc. can occur when a person is exposed to a large amount of radiation. The explosion of a nuclear bomb could spread Radioactive Iodine and cause radiation sickness.

Notes


  • Radiation is monitored more closely now than in previous years and has been reduced in cancer treatments.
  • A study on rats stated that a rat given orange juice before radiation had less damage than a rat given water before radiation.
