    Cancer is the main worry, but scientists have also linked radiation exposure to heart disease. This is not conclusive yet, but those exposed to radiation from the A-bomb showed more prevalence of heart disease.

         Being exposed to very large doses of radiation, for example from a nuclear bomb, can cause acute radiation poisoning. Its symptoms include are nausea, vomiting, fatigue, fever skin damage, seizures, and sometimes the patient can go into a coma. Acute radiation poisoning is very rare, only a nuclear bomb or a nuclear reactor accident can release enough radiation to cause it.

    Radiation has the ability to damage DNA.  If this damage occurs in egg or sperm cells, the children that result could have birth defects, such as missing limbs.
