The term radiation refers to energy that travels through space or matter in the form of energetic waves or particles. When radiation occurs, the waves move out in all directions from the producer of the energy. Radiation can be ionizing, which means it has the capacity to modify the ions of an atom, or non-ionizing, in which it does not possess that ability. Examples of Everyday Radiation Non-ionizing Radiation Visible light Infrared light Near ultraviolet light Microwaves Low frequency waves Radio waves Waves produced by mobile phones A campfire's heat Thermal radiation Extremely low frequency waves (3 – 30 Hz) Very low frequency waves (3-30 kHz) Power lines Strong magnets MRI LEDs Lasers Light bulbs Light from the sun Remote controls Cordless phones Radio-frequency radiation such as televisions, FM and AM radio Shortwave and CB's Computer screens Infrared lamps use to maintain food temperature in restaurants Ionizing Radiation
