Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The concentration of (210)Po was determined in different foodstuffs of plant origin purchased from markets in Qena City, Upper Egypt. Measurement of (210)Po has been carried out using alpha spectrometry technique in different food categories such as vegetables, fruits, cereals beverages and herbs. The general range of (210)Po activity levels ranged widely from <0.010-18.6±0.910mBqg(-1), with minimum being in cereal samples and maximum being in beverage samples. Tea samples recorded highest activity concentrations of (210)Po with lowest value of 10±0.54 mBqg(-1) for Crown tea and highest value of 18.6±0.910mBqg(-1) for El maabad tea. The daily intake of (210)Po from food consumption reveals that vegetables are the biggest contributors, while beverages are the lowest. The effective ingestion dose has been estimated for Qena City residents and it was found in the range 0.008-38.3μSvy(-1).
