Radioactive Definitions and Effects for Health and Benefits in Agriculture

Radioactive Definitions and Effects for Health and Benefits in Agriculture
In this case the use of radioactive material, which is specifically radioactive radiation is based on the ability of radiation to cause changes such as ionizing molecules or molecules, breaking bonds between atoms so as to produce free radicals, making the nucleus or nucleons become radioactive and freeing up some heat energy.
To be able to be used effectively and efficiently, first identify to find out the type and amount of radiation to be used. This needs to be done because each type of radiation has unique properties so to determine its presence both in the type and amount of radiation it is also necessary to use methods and techniques that are also typical for each type of radiation.
Radioactive decay occurs in three main types - named alpha, beta and gamma decay with the first three-letter symbol of the Greek alphabet. Radioactive decay occurs in unstable atomic nuclei - those that do not have enough binding energy to hold the nucleus together due to excess either protons or neutrons, appearing in three main types - named alpha, beta and gamma decay with the first three letter symbol from the Greek alphabet.
Gamma radiation is the most million of the three and will be able to penetrate a few centimeters of lead. Beta particles will be absorbed by a few millimeters of aluminum while alpha particles will stop their tracks after a few centimeters of air or a piece of paper.

Effects on human health
There are two main health effects caused by radiation that act in the short and long term and also at shorter and greater distances. Radiation causes health problems by killing cells in the body and the amount and type of damage done depends on the radiation dose received and the time at which the dose was spread.
Radioactive materials that spread to a wider area can cause long-term health effects through prolonged exposure, especially if they enter the food chain or are inhaled or swallowed directly. Radioactive isotopes of iodine which undergo beta decay, can accumulate in the thyroid gland and can cause thyroid cancer.

Utilization in Agriculture
As for the utilization in agriculture which include:
Eradication of Homo With Infertile Male Techniques
Radiation can cause biological effects such as cabbage pests, in the laboratory are bred cabbage pests in the form of a considerable amount. The pest is then radiationed so that male insects become infertile. After that the pest is released in the area attacked by pests. It is hoped that a marriage between local pests and infertile males will be released, eggs from such marriages will not hatch. Thus the pest reproduction is disrupted and will reduce the population.

Plant breeding
Plant breeding or formation of superior seeds can be done using radiation. For example rice breeding, rice seedlings are given radiation with a dose that varies from the smallest dose that does not carry the effect to a lethal low dose. The irradiated seeds are then planted and placed in a garden in groups according to the size of their radiation doses.

Food Storage
We know that foodstuffs such as potatoes and onions if stored a long time will sprout. Radiation can inhibit the growth of such materials. So before the material is stored in a given dose of radiation so it will not sprout thus can be stored longer.
Thus the discussion on "Radioactive" Definition & (Effects for Health - Benefits in Agriculture) hopefully with this review can add insight and knowledge of you all, thank you very much for your visit
