Radiation can damage cells by directly striking the DNA and causing damage such as single/double strand breaks or point mutations. It’s more likely, however, that the radiation will interact with molecules in the cell’s cytoplasm, splitting them apart and forming reactive molecules called free radicals.A These free radicals, then, go on to cause DNA damage, Indian Council of Medical Research has informed that Bio initiative 2012 report has summarized about 1,800 new studies. These studies report about abnormal gene transcription, genotoxicity and single and double strand DNA damage.
