RADIOACTIVE WASTE

The aim of this web site is to explain radioactivity and its applications to the general public.

The biological half-time is a mesure of the time spent by an absorbed atom or molecule (hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, calcium, etc.) in the human body. The shorter this half-life is, the less chances an ingested radioactive will have do decay while in our organism and the less dangerous it would be.
