The effects of high level exposure to ionizing radiation are devastating and well-documented. At a level of over 6 grays, the mortality approaches 100% from genetic damage to so many stem cells that you cannot recover.

What is interesting is that a lower level of radiation is actually healthy! This is known as the radiation hormesis phenomenon.
