Test Your Knowledge About Radioactive Pollution Quiz

Let’s start the quiz

Radioactive pollution It is defined as the incorporation of unwanted radioactive elements into the environment. It may be natural or maybe a radioactive element produced by humans. Among the causes of radioactive contamination are nuclear tests that have been carried out for war purposes. These can produce radioactive rains that travel several kilometers through the air. Accidents in nuclear power plants are another major cause of radioactive pollution to obtain energy. Some sources of pollution are uranium mines, medical activities, and radon production. This affects the trophic range of ecosystems and people may have serious health problems that lead to their deaths. To prevent this, there should be safety protocols for the operation and storage of radioactive waste as well as necessary equipment.
