On the day of the fire at Chernobyl power station the world's attitude toward radiounclide contamination of foods suddenly changed. Radioactive particles were transported over Europe and Asia by air currents, and nations soon began intensive sampling and analysis efforts to determine the level and extent of contamination. This manual provides an introduction to radioactivity and radiation with an emphasis on analytical methodology for determining radiounclides in food. Background information covered includes radioactivity in the environment, metabolism of radiation in humans and animals, and radiounclides in the food chain.
