Internal Versus External Exposure to Radionuclides


We know that ingesting some radioactive particles is particularly bad because your body considers them nutrients. 

Your body doesn't differentiate between radioactive and stable iodine.

Moreover, radioactive cesium is a potassium analog; strontium is a calcium analog. 
 
Consequently, your body absorbs these radionuclides and "stores" them as if they were nutrients. 

(Here is a link to some research I did on cesium absorption http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/bio-accumulation-of-cesium-cesium-is.html )

Paul Langely has a very good post today describing research conducted by the US government on the serious effects of ingestion of radionuclides, even of minute amounts
