Re: XRAYS, GAMMA RAYS, ER.......SOLAR RADIATION?

please, PLEASE, for the good of all of us who know how radiation works, find out HOW RADIATION WORKS! Solar radiation is ionizing (it'll damage cells when hitting them directly) but cannot actually make other materials radioactive. The only thing that can do that is high neutron radiation flux. The kind you get with the explosion of a nuclear weapon or inside a nuclear reactor.
