Solution

Effects of radioactive pollution:-

Radioactive substances have disastrous effects on the entire ecosystem. The damage caused by radiations may be transmitted to several generations.

  1. Radioactive substances present in the soil get transferred to growing plants.
  2. This affects the plant DNA, resulting in the death of some plants, while some plants produce weak seeds.
  3. Effect of radioactive pollution on human beings is mild to severe depending on the level and the duration of exposure of radiations.
  4. Radiations react with the human biological molecules forming ions. These ions have the capacity to destroy cells, proteins, nucleic acids and enzymes.
