C14 with radioactive β decay


By emitting an electron and an electron antineutrino, one of the neutrons in the carbon-14 atom decays to a proton and the carbon-14 (half-life of 5700 ± 40 years) decays into the stable (non-radioactive) isotope nitrogen-14.

β particles are moderately penetrating in living tissue, and can cause spontaneous mutation in DNA.
