Radioactive Pollution

Radioactive pollution or radiological contamination also called radioactive contamination, is defined as the deposition or presence of radioactive substances that are present on surfaces or within solids, liquids or gases (including the human body), where their presence is unintended or undesirable. Such contamination causes hazard and negative effects because of the radioactive decay of the contaminants, which emit harmful ionizing radiation such as alpha particles or beta particles, gamma rays or neutrons. The degree and amount of hazard is determined by the concentration of the contaminants. It also depends upon other factors like the energy of the radiation being emitted, the type of radiation, and the proximity of the contamination to organs of the body.
