How can you prove that all living things on earth emit radiation?

There are many forms of radiation. The radiation people usually think of is the radiation associated with nuclear decay; the radiation that comes from an X-ray machine or a nuclear bomb. However, radiation includes thermal radiation. This is the emission of heat. Since almost all chemical reactions result in the production of heat, and the metabolism of any living creature is essentially a very complex inter-related series of chemical reactions, all living creatures emit radiation: Living creatures require food ---> Food is broken down into nutrients and absorbed (this is a chemical reaction) ---> Chemical reactions generally produce heat ---> Living creatures radiate heat ---> Living creatures emit radiation
