What is radiation?
Radiation is energy in the form of waves or particles. Radiation doesn’t just come from nuclear energy. It’s all around us – and we’re exposed to both natural and man-made sources of radiation daily. Heat and light from the sun are examples of naturally occurring radiation. Microwaves, radio waves, and television signals are other common forms of everyday radiation.
