Abstract

In order to estimate the degree to which the Norwegian population was exposed to radiation as a consequence of the Chernobyl accident, four population groups were selected in 1987. Two groups encompassed individuals who were assumed to consume relatively large amounts of foods containing high levels of radionuclides. Two other groups included randomly selected people from two different districts. Two methods, dietary studies and whole-body measurements, were used to estimate the dose burden to which the participants had been exposed. The intake of radionuclides via food during the course of a year was estimated by dietary studies, while whole-body measurements were performed on people once a year to determine body reactivity levels. The annual dose was calculated on the basis of data gathered from the two types of study. The investigational period was March to May in 1987 to 1990. There was good correlation between doses estimated on the basis of dietary studies on the one hand and whole-body measurements on the other. Nevertheless, there was a two-fold difference in the size of the dose estimated by the two methods. The average annual radiocesium intake by the Norwegian population has been between 10000 and 25000 Bq, milk been the major  More>>

Dietary advice, together with agricultural decontamination measures, have resulted in considerable reduction in the level of exposure in the population. The study also demonstrated that changes in dietary habits have led to a dramatic dose reduction in the specially selected groups. 8 refs., 7 figs., 22 tabs.}
