3. Can a large dose of gamma radiation turn someone into the Incredible Hulk (increase size, turn green, then go back to normal)? Why or why not? No we would not be able to transform into the Incredible Hulk. Gamma radiation is a form of high energy radiation and exposing our body’s and cells to this type of radiation would cause our DNA to mutate or even be destroyed. 4. Which of the causes of mutations can we avoid? Why or why not? We can avoid mutations caused by radiation by staying away from things that give off radiation, by limiting our exposure to radiation, using lead barriers when using x-ray machines and limiting exposure to UV we can reduce our risk of mutations. The risk of chemical mutations can also be reduced by limiting our exposure to the harmful chemicals that cause these mutations. 5. Which of the causes of mutations can we not avoid? Why or why not? Spontaneous mutations cannot be avoided or the risk reduced because these happen by accident and without any notice.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
