Radiation sounds scary, especially since there has been a hot topic on the Internet recently.

“Banana contains radiation”, which makes many people dare not even eat bananas.

Actually every object around us is radiating, including human bodies, but the amount is very small, so it will not affect health.  For example, microwave and sunlight are all radiations that we are exposed to or even use on a daily life.
