Concentrations of 137Cs and 40K in edible mushrooms collected in Japan and radiation dose due to their consumption.


To estimate radiocesium intake due to eating mushrooms, about 100 samples belonging to 11 species were analyzed to establish representative values for 137Cs and 40K in common edible mushrooms available in food markets. Concentration ranges were <0.047-39 Bq kg(-1) (wet wt) for 137Cs and 30-210 Bq kg(-1) (wet wt) for 40K. The median concentrations were 1.3… (More)
