Radon Molecular Action and Genetic Effects

Ionizing Radiation consists of alpha, beta and gamma particles: Alpha radiation is simply helium nuclei, that is, each particle consists of two protons and two neutrons. Because the nuclei have no electrons, they have a +2 charge. Because of its mass, alpha radiation will not penetrate healthy skin or even a piece of paper. However, if alpha radiation enters the mouth or nose, it may cause cancers in lungs or other organs.
