  In Life Atomic, Creager offers a new perspective by exploring a different side of radiation science: the use of radioisotopes in laboratory science and medical research. During the early days of the Cold War, radioisotopes were hailed as a peaceful use of atomic science, a way to put fission products to use for everything from curing cancer to Brand: University of Chicago Press. radiation biologists, medical physicists, radiation protection officers and other disciplines involved in radiation activities.

Ionizing radiation (ionising radiation) is radiation, traveling as a particle or electromagnetic wave, that carries sufficient energy to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing an atom or a molecule.

Ionizing radiation is made up of energetic subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at high speeds (usually greater than 1% of the speed of light), and electromagnetic. @article{osti_, title = {Effects of atomic radiation}, author = {Schull, W.J.}, abstractNote = {This book focuses on the lifelong effects of atomic radiation exposure in language understandable by the concerned layperson or the specialist in another field.
