The new study was assessed the effect of naturally radioactive elements in soil and water to ward human being. The most of the world's coverage was of radioactivity element exist in water and soil surface. Natural radioactive material such as 238U 232Th, 238U, and 40K, are of major concern to emit ionizing radiation. Water is one of the vastest natural resources. The amount of naturally occurring radioactivity in the country's soils, and groundwater is associated in its occurrence. The soil and water sample were technically distinguished by using advanced instrument high-purity germanium gamma-ray detector. Natural radioactivity and radiation in soils and water have gained substantial works attention because humans are exposed to natural radioactivity at different levels depending on natural radioactive materials were presented throughout in country. The aim of the current work was to know the risk of radiation and forward the scientific information to the researchers. The main source of ionizing radiation that pollutant the soil and water was occurred in nature. In this work have focused the property and associated between the source of emitting ionizing radiation with target sample. It seen that the consequence of determinant and somatic effect. The study was also assessed the producer of radionuclide exposed to the peoples.
