Expert Answer:

Radioactivity is high energy particles such as alpha, beta and gamma rays. The energy is so high that when they pass human body they can damage the cell. The cell is not ready to take so much energy as the rays pass through them. The radiaoactive rays can kill the cells, cause mutation.
