Okay, I just figured radiation was the byproduct of nuclear fission but I do recall that there are other radioactive things out there, such as oil well logging devices, X-ray machines and our uranium mines. Uranium in its natural form has a certain amount of radioactivity doesn't it?

A lot of mineral have natural radioactivity and go through radioactive decay. It becomes an issue when the level of radiations emitted goes beyond a certain number. Those are set by norms and safety rules...

Uranium is indeed known for its high radioactivity.
