A:

Hi Kiruthiga,

Nuclear Radiations: Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings showed the ugliest harmful effects on health and genetic mutations.

Gamma Rays: These rays are so harmful, that when exposed to the larger extent, they may also prove to be fatal.

Depending on the duration and region of exposure on our body even X-rays can have harmful effects on our well-being and genetics.

Hope this helped :)
