Advantages and Disadvantages of Radioactivity?

Answer

Radioactivity does have a medical advantage. It is used for treatment of cancer patients to reduce or deplete tumors. Another advantage is that it kills microbes and permits carbon dating to take place. A disadvantage of radioactivity is that using it as a medical treatment does make the reproductive organs sterile. Over-exposure does have negative affects on your health. A large dose that is experienced all at one time can be fatal and is usually only an issue in the event of an explosion.
