Effects of radiation on cells: inhibition of mitosis; chromosome aberrations. Early effects: effects occurring within a few weeks of acute exposure; due to depletion of cell populations. Late effects: main effect is cancer induction. Hereditary effects: appear in descendants of exposed individuals. Stochastic effects: mainly cancer and genetic effects; probability of occurrence depends on dose. Non-stochastic effects: severity depends on dose. Revision questions 1. Describe how radioactivity can be deposited in various organs of the body: (a) if it is inhaled, and (b) if it is ingested (swallowed).
Digestive system: converts food into a form suitable for the produc- tion of heat and energy, and molecules necessary for the growth and repair of tissues. Stages in radiation damage process: (a) Initial physical stage ("' w- 16 s) consJstmg of ionization and excitation of atoms and molecules. (b) Physico-chemical stage (10- 8 to w-s s) consisting of dissociation of ions and formation of free radicals. Biological Effects of Radiation 49 (c) Chemical stage consisting of the interaction of free radicals with other molecules in the body.
The volume of air breathed per day is approximately 20 cubic metres, of which half is usually considered to be breathed during the eight hours at work. e. airborne dusts). Gases pass freely into the lungs and enter the bloodstream to a greater or lesser extent depending on their solubility. In the case of particulate matter, only a fraction of the inhaled material is deposited in the lungs, the remainder is either exhaled or deposited in the upper respiratory passages and subsequently swallowed.
