The absence of Info

The good news Cs134 half life is only 2 years is a single beta decay and 0.3Bq is a really low concentration. For reference our own bone K40 is triple beta decay at 5,000 Bq. So really, something to monitor but not panic over. What I find amazing for team science is that we can measure that low of an isotope concentration. A Bq is literally a single atom going poof per second. Regular elemental Cesium is already an industrial pollutant contaminating the food chain and should be a higher priority of concern.
