Whether a new radioactive source will be generated after X-ray irradiation, a friend asked the editor such a question today. So let’s briefly talk about this issue.
First of all, we need to understand what X-ray is. From the name, we can know that X-ray is also a kind of light, but its frequency is different from that of visible light. X-rays are not emitted by radiating objects, but electromagnetic waves, which do not leave traces on the human body or the irradiated objects. Imagine that the human body is illuminated by the sun, and it will not cause the body to glow.
So what kind of objects might emit radiation? In short, the problem of heavy metal elements may have radiation, which is what we should pay attention to in our daily life. However, the radiation of heavy metals exposed to daily life is generally not enough to cause harm to the human body, so there is no need to worry too much.
