An article recently published in the journal has featured in the press this week. The paper, which looks at trace levels of radioactivity in air, water, and milk samples in the United States over several weeks following the disaster, has been mentioned in an article in the International Business Times.
The article found that while levels of certain cadmium, technetium and iodide radionucleotides were elevated, these levels were still ‘well below any level of public and environmental concern’.
