Radiation is all around us. You won’t have to worry about getting cancer or suffering from health issues if your body is not exposed to heavy doses of radiation regularly. You can look up radiation information around the world online. You could also use radiation detectors of your own to find out about radiation hazards at your location. If you happen to own an iPhone, you could use these kits to turn your iPhone into a radiation detector:
