Can gamma rays hurt you?

    Yes. Because radiation from gamma rays can pass into your body and strike your DNA molecules, thus damaging them, gamma rays can cause radiation sickness or cancer.

    Because of the gamma ray’s penetrating power and ability to travel great distances, it is considered the primary hazard to the general population during most radiological emergencies. In fact, when the term “radiation sickness” is used to describe the effects of large exposures in short time periods, the most severe damage almost certainly results from gamma radiation.
