Radiation is energy travelling through space in the form of waves or particles. It occurs naturally and has always been around, we've evolved with it and we're bombarded with it in one form or another every day of our lives - from the earth, from space and even within our own bodies. Some experts suggest a little radiation is a good thing and we all know of its uses in medical science to combat and diagnose some illnesses.
There are various types of radiation but we won't get into the physics of atoms, neutrons and protons (there are plenty of websites that explain it if you want the scientific stuff) - but we will tell you why radiation is in mobile phones and whether or not you need to worry about it.
