Radiation Protection


Radiation Protection is a general term applied to the profession/science related to protecting man and the environment from Radiation hazards. Strictly speaking, it should represent all forms of radiation (e.g. Ionising and Non-Ionising) but is mostly applied to ionising radiations. See Health Physics for related definition.

Physics is really nothing more than a search for ultimate simplicity, but so far all we have is a kind of elegant messiness
