Exploring Tritium Dangers discusses much neglected aspects of radiation risks when radionuclides are inside the body and inside cells. It considers risks to the embryo and fetus of radionuclides that cross the placenta by using tritium, radioactive hydrogen, which becomes radioactive water, as the illustrative pollutant. It focuses on non-cancer risks in early pregnancy, ecosystem impacts, and suggests the ways in oxidative stress caused by internal radiation could combine with similar stress by non-radioactive pollutants like heavy metals, notably to damage mitochondria, which power the energy systems of plants, fungi, and animals, including people.
