This is the seventh in a series of reports from the National Research Council (NRC) prepared to advise the U.S. government on the relationship between exposure to ionizing radiation and human health. Radiation can damage health in ways other than cancer. It is less likely, but damage to genetic material in reproductive cells can cause genetic mutations, which could be passed on to future generations. Exposing a developing embryo or fetus to radiation can increase the risk of birth Size: KB.

The book opens with a general introduction to nomenclature, dosimetric methods and models in the occupational and environmental settings, the behaviour of radiation in biological tissues, and sources of human exposure. Natural background radiation is identified as by far the largest source of exposure for the world's population. Radiation therapy is a local and painless treatment, which affects only the treated part of the body, unlike chemotherapy where chemicals go through the entire system. Generally, the benefits of radiation therapy are considered to exceed the related risks and side effects. Radiation .
