This publication presents the first ever set of independently generated data on dietary intakes and organ contents of elements that are important in radiological protection, namely, caesium, iodine, strontium, thorium and uranium, in Asian populations. In addition to the collection of information on elements that are important in radiological protection and in publications on Reference Man including Asian populations, this project also generated data on elements of interest in nutrition and human health. The results presented will therefore be of interest not only to professionals involved in aspects of radiological protection associated with unsealed sources but also to nutritionists and other health professionals monitoring intakes of trace elements.
