This web page is a public health statement prepared by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry about plutonium and the health effects resulting from exposure to it. The statement is a guide to understanding plutonium, how it is produced, the ways one may become exposed to it, and how it enters and leaves the body. It identifies the dose of plutonium, duration of exposure, method of exposure, other chemicals that may be involved, and individual characteristics such as age, sex, and lifestyle as factors that determine the degree to which plutonium affects human health. Included are recommendations by the United States federal government to protect human health.
