|Title||Radioactivity measurements in tap water in Gaza Strip (Al-Naser Area)|
Ionizing radiation comes from outer space (cosmic), the ground (terrestrial), and even from within our own bodies. It is present in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and in the construction materials used to build our homes. Exposure to radon and its progeny is believed to be associated with increased risks of several kinds of cancer. When radon or its progeny is inhaled, lung cancer accounts for most of the total incremental cancer risk. Ingestion of radon in water is suspected of being associated with increased risk of tumors of several internal organs, primarily the stomach.
