    High levels of radiation exposure can have drastic effects on our bodies. Because of its high energy content, ionizong radiation is capable of breaking down and apart the atoms within our bodies–causing everything to jump out of whack. 

    When this happens, it leaves our cells compltely vulnerable. Many areas can be irreparable damaged. For example, nerve cells and blood vessels in the brain can die putting a person in danger of fits of seizures. Cataracts may form in the eyes. Reduction of heart function and intestinal damage are likely. For more in depth information on the consequences, check out the websites below.
