Low dose radiation effects on chromosome
The effects of low-dose radiation on health are not fully understood. The term low dose radiation is generally used for absorbed doses of ionizing radiation less than 10 rem or 0.1 Sv.
The entire man-made contribution to radiation dose amounts to about 0.2 percent of natural dose in areas of high natural radiation. Low dose radiation biology has unwrapped new avenues of biological explorations with respect to bystander effects, adaptive instability and genetic susceptibility, altered gene expression
