What causes radioactivity?

Radioactivity is the decay of particles by emitting radiation. The elements and compounds have some degree of stability properties. The more stable the atom, less the radioactivity. Every particle is made up of atoms and when a particle acquires energy, its particles jump into higher orbit. The electrons become less attracted towards the nucleus and become unstable. This flows in the form of radiation in its surroundings.
