A study of internal contamination levels resulting from {sup 90}Sr and {sup 137}Cs environmental pollution. The influence of different factors; Etude des niveaux de contamination interne resultant d'une pollution de l'environnement par le {sup 90}Sr et le {sup 137}Cs influence des differents parametres

Abstract

This study includes two parts. The purpose of the former one is to try and evaluate the amounts of {sup 90}Sr and {sup 137}Cs dietary intakes as a function of age with a view to assessing internal exposure doses and estimating the critical age, and to study the relative significance of the several factors it depends on. The data used are both the results of dietary surveys made in 11 districts of the European community from which the evolution of the consumed amounts of 13 groups of foodstuffs, as a function of age was derived, and the mean factors of contamination pathways. The variability of some factors is very large and an attempt is made to assess their significance on the whole contamination; also, the influence of the various diets has been emphasized. The purpose of the second part is to assess, doses as a function of age in the case of protracted exposure on the basis of the aforesaid results and radiobiological factors derived from bibliographic states of the arts. An assessment is made of body burdens and mean doses (either to the skeleton or the whole body according to the radionuclides) originating either from a direct unitary exposure  More>>

An assessment is made of body burdens and mean doses (either to the skeleton or the whole body according to the radionuclides) originating either from a direct unitary exposure or from situations implying both modes of exposure. As assumed only the diets vary with the districts, thus the results reflect their significance which should be corrected, for a more accurate assessment of the dose variability, by the significance of human and transfer factors. (author) [French] Cette etude comprend deux parties. L'objet de la premiere partie est a la fois un essai d'evaluation en fonction de l'age des quantites de strontium 90 et de cesium 137 ingerees avec les aliments dans la perspective d'une application a l'estimation des doses d'irradiation interne et a la recherche de l'age critique, et une etude de l'influence relative des divers parametres dont elle depend. Les donnees utilisees sont, d'une part, les resultats des enquetes alimentaires faites en onze regions de la Communaute Europeenne dont on a tire l'evolution des quantites consommees de treize groupes d'aliments en fonction de l'age, et, d'autre part, les parametres moyens de transfert de la contamination. La variabilite de certains de ces parametres est tres grande et l'on a tente d'en evaluer l'incidence sur la contamination totale. On a egalement mis en evidence l'influence de la diversite des regimes alimentaires. L'objet de la deuxieme partie est l'evaluation des doses en fonction de l'age, dans le cas de contamination prolongee, d'apres les resultats precedents, et d'apres les parametres radiobiologiques tires d'etudes bibliographiques. On evalue les charges corporelles et les doses moyennes (soit au squelette, soit au corps entier suivant le radionucleide), rapportees soit a une contamination directe unitaire, soit a des situations impliquant les deux modes de contamination reunis. Dans l'hypothese choisie, seuls les regimes alimentaires sont differents d'une region a l'autre, les resultats refletent donc leur influence. Cette influence devrait etre corrigee, pour une evaluation plus exacte de la variabilite de la dose, par celle des parametres humains et par celle des parametres de transfert. (auteur)}
