Radiation (from Latin radiatio) is the radiating action and effect (to emit rays of light, heat or other Energy ). For the physical , it is the wave energy or the material particles that propagate through space.
There are various types of radiation. The electromagnetic radiation it is that supposes the propagation of energy by combining oscillating electric and magnetic fields. It is known as electromagnetic spectrum to the energy distribution of electromagnetic waves, ranging from gamma rays (whose wavelength is measured in picometers) to radio waves (with wavelengths that can be measured in kilometers).
The corpuscular radiation It consists in the propagation of subatomic particles that move at great speed with a wave character. These particle They can be charged or unloaded from an electrical point of view.
The solar radiation It is the set of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the Sun and that determine the temperature in the land .
The ionizing radiation On the other hand, it propagates enough energy to ionize matter. This means that ionizing radiation produces ions and extracts electrons from the state linked to atom.
X-ray generators and particle accelerators are examples of ionizing radiation. It is important to keep in mind that ionizing radiation produces effects on living matter. That is why it can be used for treatments radiotherapy in oncology, for example.
Ionizing radiation can also be harmful to living beings, since excessive exposure to this type of radiation can cause poisoning and interfere with the process of division mobile.
The dangers of electromagnetic radiation
Several organizations have been pointing out the terrible consequences that excessive and irresponsible use of dispositives that base their operation on electromagnetic radiation, such as mobile phones, especially among younger people.
Mobile phones are considered by many to be a potential danger to our Health; So much so, that some scientists say that it is not necessary to be making a call to cause us harm, but that it is enough to have them close to the body. On the other hand, mobile phone stations represent a similar threat.
Among the serious consequences of contact with cell phone microwaves are the overheating of cells in the area of the brain closer to the antenna (which today is "invisible" to the user, since it is inside the device), the rupture of chromosomes, alterations in the pressure of the arteries of the brain during the use of the device, problems to reconcile sleep, acute headaches and coronary problems.
On the other hand, most mobile phone users do not know that these devices have an automatic emission enhancer, which adjusts the intensity of the wave depending on its distance from the antenna (also called "cell"); In other words, every time someone makes a call from a point with little coverage, they receive the highest doses of radiation.
For the authors of the numerous complaints about the danger of this technology, it is alarming that companies and governments do not inform people about these issues; on the contrary, they allow them to put in risk your health without even being aware of it.
Needless to say, the reasons why the risks of using certain devices are hidden include the interests of large companies. But it is essential to highlight that one of the diseases that can cause electromagnetic fields is cancer. It is difficult to imagine life in the city without computers, televisions, appliances and mobile phones; However, its use, as well as exposure to telephone antennas and high-voltage towers, is undeniably dangerous to health.
