Research: San Francisco Residents Inhale 75 Million Radioactive Atoms

The following video looks into the topic of ‘Hot Particles’ and explains how , on average, a typical resident of San Francisco will inhale around 75 million radioactive atoms of Plutonium every 4 days.

According to the videos description:

In order to make the EPA’s Plutonium 239 detection from March 15- March 18, 2011 understandable in terms people could visualize, we calculated the distributed average number of Pu-239 atoms inhaled by EVERY single person in the Bay area during that time period. We also discuss the other radioactive elements detected, and how the EPA’s detection of Iodine-133 is especially troubling. We hope the video will give people additional insight into the topic of “Hot Particles”
