has been suggested that cesium-137
may move up the food chain and become
Particularly worrisome are the large amounts of cesium-137
in spent-fuel pools, because nearly all of this dangerous isotope would be released into the environment in a fire, according to the NRC.
The aim of the paper is using net soil erosion estimates obtained by cesium-137
technique (Di Stefano et al.
These experiments were unsuccessful, however, because only cesium-137
was available and it produced unpredictable radiation dosages.
White working at the Institute Belrad, Devoino had conducted more than 300,000 independent measurements of Cesium-137
contamination in food.
One billion curies of strontium-90 and cesium-137
have been injected so far, which, because of their half-life, would be expected to shrink to one curie in about 900 years.

Recently, Kochian, with colleagues Lasat and Ebbs, identified specific agronomic practices and plant species to remediate soils contaminated with radioactive cesium or cesium-137
IN NORTHEAST TENNESSEE, AND ITS RELATION TO THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT.
Reindeer meat in northern Norway was found to contain 500-2,500 becquerel (Bq) of cesium-137
per kilogram, it said.
When food is irradiated, it's passed through a chamber containing rods of radioactive cobalt-60 or cesium-137
