Biological Effects of Exposure to Radiation Radiation can harm either the whole body (somatic damage) or eggs and sperm (genetic damage). Its effects are more pronounced in cells that reproduce rapidly, such as the stomach lining, hair follicles, bone marrow, and embryos.

Biological Effects of Radiation, Second Edition aims to present an organized survey of the various experiments wherein living materials have been exposed to ionizing and exciting types of radiations.

However, this book focuses on the effects of radiation to lower organisms, as these have received less attention.

Description: 40 pages. Bibliography: p. The biological effects of atomic radiation: summary reports from a studyPages: Biological Effects. There are two general types of biological effects from ionizing radiation: deterministic effects and stochastic effects. Stochastic effects are those effects whose frequency in the exposed population is a direct function of close, no matter how low the dose is; these effects are commonly regarded as having no threshold.

Deterministic effects are those effects Cited by: 2. Raymond L. Murray, Keith E. Holbert, in Nuclear Energy (Eighth Edition), Abstract. This chapter describes the biological effect of radiation on cells, tissues, organs, and individuals. Quantifiers for radiation dose and units such as rad, rem, gray, and sievert are identified.

Nuclear radiation is the most-studied environmental hazard in the world. The effects on people from exposure to very large amounts of radiation is well known. In this section, you will learn about the biological effects of very large radiation doses received in a relatively short period of time (acute exposure) and repeatedly over a long period.

Biological Effects of Exposure to Radiation. Radiation can harm either the whole body (somatic damage) or eggs and sperm (genetic damage). Its effects are more pronounced in cells that reproduce rapidly, such as the stomach lining, hair follicles, bone marrow, and embryos.

This in turn may cause a rapid body response often called Acute Radiation Syndrome. The higher the radiation dose, the sooner the effects of radiation will appear, and the higher the probability of death.

Many atomic bomb survivors in and emergency workers at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident experienced this syndrome.

The base of knowledge used is the work of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission and its successor since the Radiation Effects. Organized Collections Committees on Biological Effects of Atomic Radiation, The mission of the Committees on The Biological Effects of Atomic Radiation (BEAR) was to provide a thorough review of all that was known at the time about the effects of atomic radiation on living organisms.

For example, high doses of nuclear radiation can cause burns and even hair loss. Biological effects of nuclear radiation are expressed by many different physical quantities and in many different units.

A common unit to express the biological effects of nuclear radiation is the rad or radiation dose unit. One rad is equal to 1/ of a joule of nuclear energy deposited per. Abstract. The interaction of ionizing radiation with the human body, arising either from external sources outside the body or from internal contamination of the body by radioactive substances, leads to biological effects which may later show up as clinical symptoms.

The nature and severity of these symptoms and the time at which they appear depend on the amount of radiation Author: Alan Martin, Samuel A. Harbison.

Military/5(3).The health effects of nuclear explosions are due primarily to air blast, thermal radiation, initial nuclear radiation, and residual nuclear radiation or fallout. Blast. Nuclear explosions produce air-blast effects similar to those produced by conventional explosives.
