  • Gamma Rays like most other electromagnetic waves travel by cutting a fairly straight path through the world.
  • Gamma Radiation is an ionizing radiation meaning that it has enough energy to break bonds in genetic material,structural cell components and other biological molecules.
  • This can cause: Mild Radiation Sickness: Targeting the faster growing cells such as the skin, hair and gastrointestinal cells. Severe Radiation Sickness: Targeting among others the cells in the bone marrow which could result in death. Cancers: After recovering from Radiation Sickness people are at a greater risk for developing cancer.
