Effects in human health after exposure in radiations.
Nowadays we are talking about the radiation, which due to the rapid development of our technology, has become very familiar, but also there is a concern about their dangers. We must say that our planet and its inhabitants are exposed to any kind of radiation either natural or human origin. Starting from cosmic rays and background radiation as a residue of the creation of the universe, to the solar radiation and resulting radiation emitted by all types of electrical and electronic devices. It should be reported that since Edison's discovered electricity in 1879 exposure to artificial sources of radiation has increased rapidly over the last decades.
In this review we will talk about the radiation caused by natural and artificial sources and the effects on the human body.
