Why is different shielding appropriate for different kinds of radiation?

The absorption of radiation is different for each shielding material and type of radiation.

Radiation sources storage solutions?

Radiation sources are stored in containers which provide shielding to make handling and transport of the sources safe. The amount of shielding depends on the type of radiation-a gamma source requires more than a alpha or beta emitter.

Which type of radiation is most easily absorbed by shielding?

What can be done to lower exposure to radiation?

To reduce exposure try the following:avoiding sources of radiationshielding to block radiationdecontamination if the radiation source is in dust or liquid form on skin and/or clothingiodine tablets to protect the thyroid gland from iodine-131 if presentetc.These will have to be adapted depending on the exact type and source of radiation. For example some sources can't be avoided, shielding that works for one type of radiation doesn't for another, etc.
