Radioactive contamination or pollution causes
severe life- threatening consequences in organisms.
Because of the radioactive decay of the contaminants,
which emit harmful ionising radiation such as alpha
or beta particles, gamma rays or neutrons, genetic
mutations occur which are hereditary. Carcinogenic
contaminants cause cancer.
