Non-Ionizing Radiation

Non-ionizing radiation is also electromagnetic radiation. Non-ionizing radiation does not have enough energy to ionize atoms or molecules. Examples of non-ionizing radiation include radio waves, microwaves, and visible light.

But don’t be fooled. Non-ionizing radiation does have energy. It is non-ionizing radiation that gives you that sun burn when you forget to wear sun screen. It is non-ionizing radiation that enables the microwave to cook your pizza. Radios and cell phones receive signals in the form of radio waves which is also a type of non-ionizing radiation.
