Blood: carries food and oxygen to cells and removes waste products. Red blood cells: transport food and oxygen. White blood cells: defend the body against infection. Platelets: vital to the formation of clots. Respiration: method by which oxygen is taken into the lungs and carbon dioxide eliminated. Digestive system: converts food into a form suitable for the production of heat and energy, and molecules necessary for the growth and repair of tissues. Stages in radiation damage process: 1. , 10-16 s) consisting of ionization and excitation of atoms and molecules.

Using counting methods the location of the active, and hence of the ordinary non-active, isotopes of the element may be determined. Radioactive waste The increasing use of radioisotopes and, more particularly, the development of the nuclear power industry results in an ever-growing quantity of radioactive waste. Continued dispersal of low and intermediate levels of radioactive waste to the environment means that members of the general population will receive an increasing exposure from this source.
