"Sorry, it is not a clear cut answer."Not all radiation is created equalRadiation is, by definition, energy traveling through space at the speed of light. But not all radiation is dangerous in the same way.The frequency of radiation, or how energetic and powerful it is, matters a lot. High frequency radiation, like what's in X-ray machines and (on the very extreme end of the spectrum) nuclear bombs, is considered ionizing radiation because it

powerful enough to remove electrons from molecules, and damage our DNA.Ansari uses this chart to explain the difference between the two kinds of radiation, ionizing and non-ionizing:Story continuesEPA"The difference in energy is enormous, looking from one end of the spectrum to the other end," he said. The energy in high frequency ionizing radiation, represented on the right hand side of the spectrum in orange, "is billion, billion, billion times greater than the left side," he said.

Because of this, "the way they interact with biological tissue is very different," he added.In the most extreme cases, when people are exposed to extremely high doses of high frequency radiation, death is certain and swift, happening. But with non-ionizing radiation, it's still not clear how much risk exists, and whether there's really any to worry about at all.

"With radiation, dose is one of the, if notthemost important determinant of the outcome of exposure," Ansari said.Ionizing radiation from X-rays, space, and radon pose a health dangerSpace is cool, but also exposes astronauts to more cosmic ionizing radiation.

Merkel welcomes better COVID-19 situation but Delta variant a worryBERLIN (Reuters) -A recent improvement in the number of new coronavirus cases in Germany was pleasing, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday but she warned that the pandemic was not over and the risk from the Delta variant, widespread in Britain, was worrying. 'The development in terms of numbers is extremely gratifying,' Merkel told reporters after talks with leaders of Germany's 16 federal states. 'But we must not forget that the coronavirus has not disappeared and what worries us is the so-called Delta variant which has spread in Britain,' she added.
