Alpha Particles

Radioactive emissions conceived as consisting of two protons and two neutrons travelling together. This could also be called a helium ion. These have a positive charge, travel slowly, and can damage physical matter by contact. They may draw electrons from the environment in order to balance charge. If the environment happens to be within a living body, that body will be weakened.
