AB  - This review paper discusses the content of natural ( 40K, 238U, 226Ra, and 232Th) and artificial (137Cs) radionuclides in the soil of the mountains of Maljen, Tara and Kopaonik in the Republic of Serbia over 2002-2015. In addition, the paper gives radiation hazard parameters, i.e., radium equivalent activity, absorbed dose rate, annual effective dose equivalent, external hazard index, annual gonadal dose equivalent, and excess lifetime cancer risk outdoors that we calculated from the obtained content of the natural radionuclides in the soil samples. We compared the parameters to previously published results for different parts of the country and looked into the radioecological status of the investigated areas.

Uzorci zemljišta prikupljeni su u periodu od 2002. do 2015. godine na različitim nadmorskim visinama. Na osnovu sadržaja radionuklida u zemljištu odredili smo parametre radijacionog rizika: radijum ekvivalentnu aktivnost, jačinu doze, godišnju efektivnu dozu spoljašnjeg zračenja, indeks spoljašnjeg hazarda, godišnju gonadnu dozu i faktor rizika pojave kancera na području planinskih regiona Republike Srbije, i potom ih uporedili sa ranije objavljenim rezultatima za pojedine regione Republike Srbije.

AB  - The aim of the study is the investigation of the activity concentration of 137Cs and 40K in blueberry-based products that are available on the market in the Republic of Serbia. Samples were bought in stores during September 2017 and in total, ten packaged juices, two jams, two sweets and a fresh wild blueberry were measured. The activity concentrations of 137Cs in blueberry-based juices, jams and sweets varied from <MDA to 4.1 Bq/kg, <MDA to 21 Bq/kg and 0.6 Bq/kg to 28 Bq/kg, respectively. The average activity concentration of 137Cs in fresh wild blueberry was 4.1 Bq/kg. In Serbia, the recommended activity concentration of 137Cs in juices and sweets is 15 Bq/kg and 150 Bq/kg in fresh blueberries. The tested samples of juices, jams, fresh wild blueberry and one of the sweets meet the set criteria for 137Cs while one sweets sample exceeds the limit. The activity concentrations of 40K in juices, jams and sweets varied from 3.5 to 55 Bq/kg, 13.9 to 19.2 Bq/kg and 17.2 to 227 Bq/kg, respectively. The average activity concentration of 40K in fresh wild blueberry was 32 Bq/kg. With the obtained result the annual effective dose equivalent due to ingestion of blueberry-based products for adults was calculated, and for 137Cs in blueberry-based juices, jams, sweets and fresh wild blueberry varied from 0.2 to 2.5 Sv, 2.8 Sv, 0.4 to 17.0 Sv and 2.5 Sv, respectively. The annual effective dose equivalent for 40K in blueberry-based juices, jams, sweets and fresh wild blueberry varied from 1.0 to 16.0 Sv, 1.2 Sv, 5.0 to 66.0 Sv, and 9.3 Sv, respectively. © 2019 RAD Association.

AB  - Mineral additives, such as monocalcium phosphate, that are commonly used on pig farms, are obtained by processing phosphate mineral ore, and can contain high levels of 238U. Since ingestion is the main route of radioactive contamination of both animals and humans, the goal of this paper is to measure specific activity of natural and artificial radionuclides in monocalcium phosphate and complete feed mixtures for pigs. Mineral additives with high levels of natural radionuclides can contaminate complete feed mixtures making them unsuitable for use. Samples were collected from three different farms, and in total fifteen samples of monocalcium and forty five samples of complete feed mixture were measured. Samples of monocalcium phosphate show the 238U activity concentration of 13.2-2097Bq/kg. Other naturally occurring radionuclides are measured in monocalcium and the results give: 21.4-25.5 Bq/kg for 40K, 1.5 -12.1 Bq/kg for226Ra, 1.5-2.9 Bq/kg for 232Th, and 1.5-10.8 Bq/kg for 214Bi. These radionuclides are further measured in complete feed mixtures and only one sample shows elevated concentrations of 238U (3.1 Bq/kg) and 226Ra (3.5 Bq/kg). Potassium-40 is detected in all samples, with the specific activity range 208-329 Bq/kg, while other naturally occurring radionuclides and artificial radioceasium are below the detection limits.

AB  - U cilju procene uticaja deponije komunalnog otpada na životnu sredinu i lanac ishrane,
gamaspektrometrijskom analizom ispitani su uzorci zemljišta, vode, kao i proizvodi
biljnog i životinjskog porekla. Uzorci su prikupljeni tokom 2016. godine na području
prigradske Opštine Grocka, u naselju Vinča. Rezultati pokazuju da je sadržaj prirodnih
radionuklida na nivou karakterističnom za ispitivane vrste uzoraka. Proizvedeni
radionuklid 137Cs detektovan je u zemljištu (7,1–41,1) Bq/kg, ali nije uključen u lanac
ishrane. Svi uzorci hrane biljnog i životinjskog porekla su radijaciono higijenski
bezbedni za ljudsku ishranu.
AB  - To estimate an influence of amunicipal waste landfill on the environment and food
chain, gamma spectrometric analysis of the various environmental samples is
conducted. The samples were collected in the village of Vinča, Grocka municipality,
Belgrade, Serbia, during 2016, and included the following: soil at a depth of 0–20 cm
and 20–40 cm; water samples from wells and the Danube river; fruit samples of apples,
pears, peaches and apricots; vegetable samples of onions, carrots, potatoes, cabbages
and corn; products of animal origin used in human diet–eggs, goat milk, goat cheese,
pork, pork liver and chicken meat. A content of 40K, 238U, 235U, 226Ra, 214Bi, 232Th, and
137Cs in the samples is investigated. The results show concentrations of the natural
radionuclides within the reported ranges for Serbia. The artificial 137Cs is detected in
the soil (7.1–41.1 Bq/kg), but not in any of the other samples from the food chain.
Therefore, our results imply that the products of plant and animal origin produced in
the vicinity of the landfill are radiologically safe for human consumption.

abstract = "U cilju procene uticaja deponije komunalnog otpada na životnu sredinu i lanac ishrane,
gamaspektrometrijskom analizom ispitani su uzorci zemljišta, vode, kao i proizvodi
biljnog i životinjskog porekla. Uzorci su prikupljeni tokom 2016. godine na području
prigradske Opštine Grocka, u naselju Vinča. Rezultati pokazuju da je sadržaj prirodnih
radionuklida na nivou karakterističnom za ispitivane vrste uzoraka. Proizvedeni
radionuklid 137Cs detektovan je u zemljištu (7,1–41,1) Bq/kg, ali nije uključen u lanac
ishrane. Svi uzorci hrane biljnog i životinjskog porekla su radijaciono higijenski
bezbedni za ljudsku ishranu., To estimate an influence of amunicipal waste landfill on the environment and food
chain, gamma spectrometric analysis of the various environmental samples is
conducted. The samples were collected in the village of Vinča, Grocka municipality,
Belgrade, Serbia, during 2016, and included the following: soil at a depth of 0–20 cm
and 20–40 cm; water samples from wells and the Danube river; fruit samples of apples,
pears, peaches and apricots; vegetable samples of onions, carrots, potatoes, cabbages
and corn; products of animal origin used in human diet–eggs, goat milk, goat cheese,
pork, pork liver and chicken meat. A content of 40K, 238U, 235U, 226Ra, 214Bi, 232Th, and
137Cs in the samples is investigated. The results show concentrations of the natural
radionuclides within the reported ranges for Serbia. The artificial 137Cs is detected in
the soil (7.1–41.1 Bq/kg), but not in any of the other samples from the food chain.
Therefore, our results imply that the products of plant and animal origin produced in
the vicinity of the landfill are radiologically safe for human consumption.",

AB  - Tokom 1987–2013. godine vršena su ispitivanja na planinama Kopaonik, Tara, Maljen i
Zlatibor, sa ciljem da se utvrdi sadržaj 137Cs u ovim područjima i njegova migracija kroz
lanac ishrane. Specifična aktivnost 137Cs u zemlji, travi, senu, mleku, mlečnim
proizvodima, mesu i biljnim čajevima određena je standardnom metodom spektrometrije
gama zračenja na poluprovodničkim detektorima. Rezultati pokazuju da je černobiljski
radiocezijum i dalje prisutan u životnoj sredini. U svim karikama lanca ishrane: zemljište
– biljke – proizvodi životinjskog porekla, tokom 2000–2007. godine na Tari i Maljenu,
detektovan je radiocezijum, a najviši stepen kontaminacije nađen je u uzorcima sa
područja Maljena. Međutim, u uzorcima sa Kopaonika koji su prikupljeni 2013. godine,
radiocezijum nije detektovan u mleku, siru niti u mesu. Razlike u nivou kontaminacije
zemljišta na ispitivanim lokacijama posledica su razlika u količini padavina posle
černobiljskog akcidenta, nadmorske visine, karakteristika reljefa, sastava zemljišta i vrste
biljaka. Najviša specifična aktivnost 137Cs u lekovitom bilju sakupljenom tokom

AB  - To investigate content of 137Cs and its migration through the food chain in mountainous
regions in Serbia, environmental samples were collected over 1987–2013. Specific
activity of 137Cs in samples of the soil, grass, hay, milk, dairy products, meat and herbal
tea plants was determined by standard gamma spectroscopy on semiconductor detectors.
Samples from the mountains of Kopaonik, Tara, Maljen and Zlatibor were analysed. The
results imply that the Chernobyl radioceasium is still present in the environment.
Radioceasium was detected in all parts of the food chain, from the soil, through plants to
animal products, in Tara and Maljen over 2000–2007. A higher level of contamination
was found in the samples from Maljen. However, 137Cs was not detected in the milk,
cheese and meat samples that were collected from Kopaonik during 2013. Differences in
the soil contamination noted across the investigated locations are a result of a number of
factors, including the amount of precipitation after the Chernobyl nuclear accident,
altitude, type of relief, soil and plants. The highest 137Cs specific activity in herbal tea
plants that were collected over 2011–2012, is measured in V. mirtillus.

AB  - Herbal teas are an important part of traditional medicine in Serbia. The objective of the present study was to determine the activity concentrations of K-40 and Cs-137 in herbal tea, using the gamma spectroscopy method. The samples were collected during the period 2011-2012 in three mountain regions in Western and Central Serbia. The activity concentrations of K-40 and Cs-137 were found to be in the range of 130-1160 and 0.7-124 Bq kg(-1), respectively. The average annual effective dose equivalents from ingestion of K-40 and Cs-137 for an adult person consuming one cup of herbal tea daily were found to be 588.4-5250.2 nSv for K-40 and 4.0-706.1 nSv for Cs-137. Our investigation showed that the herbal teas originating from Maljen, Zlatibor and Tara mountains are radiologically safe for human consumption.

AB  - Considering that previous studies were mainly focused on a protection of domestic animals from alimentary Cs-contamination, the objective of the present study was to investigate the possibilities of ammonium - iron (III) hexacyanoferrate (II) - AFCF and clinoptilolite as radioprotectors. Pheasants of species Phasianus colchicus were used as trial animals. The total number of 2-month old pheasants was 100. The pheasants were divided into five groups; each group was contaminated with 750 Bq of Cs-137 per bird in a single experiment. The experiment consisted of 5 phases during which the animals were given AFCF (0.2 g) and clinoptilolite (2 g) either in water solution or mixed with food, according to the phase. The level of contamination was determined by gamma - spectrometry in breast meat, leg meat, liver and gizzard. The results show that the best protection effect was obtained when AFCF is used in the water solution i.e. 92.7%; while AFCF mixing with food demonstrated 74.9% of protection; clinoptilolite proved less protective with 69.3% - in the water solution, and 50.5% when mixed with food.

AB  - The aim of the present study was to investigate distribution of Cs-137 in leg and breast meat of broilers and pheasants following single alimentary contamination and administration of two protectors (AFCF and clinoptilolite). The birds were administered a single dose of (CsCl)-Cs-137, with an activity of 750 Bq. Protectors were given via gastric tube or mixed in the forage pellets. AFCF given via gastric tube decreased the Cs-137 concentration by a factor of 7.8 in broilers leg meat and 7.4 in broilers breast meat. When AFCF was mixed in pellets, the Cs-137 concentration was 19.5 times lower in broilers leg meat and 22.1 times lower in broilers breast meat, than in the control group. In pheasants, AFCF administered via gastric tube decreased the Cs-137 concentration by a factor of 12.4 in leg meat and by a factor of 13.7 in breast meat, respectively. In group 4, where pheasants were administered AFCF mixed in pellets, the Cs-137 concentration was 3.7 times lower in leg and breast meat, than in the control group. For comparison, clinoptilolite administered via gastric tube decreased the Cs-137 concentration 1.8 times in broilers leg meat and 2.0 times in breast meat, compared to the control group. In pheasants, Cs-137 concentration was 2.9 times lower in leg meat and 2.6 times lower in breast meat. Clinoptilolite mixed in the feed had relatively low efficiency of protection in broilers (Cs-137 concentration was 1.4 times lower in leg meat and 1.6 lower in breast meat). A similar trend was observed in pheasants (Cs-137 concentration was 1.6 lower in leg and breast meat).

AB  - By gamma spectroscopic measurement a content of natural radio-nuclides ((40)K, (238)U, (226)Ra, (232)Th) and (137)Cs was determined in samples of soil, alfalfa, maize and moss on six sites in the surroundings of Belgrade. Natural radio-nuclides in the soil were at the level characteristic for Serbia, whereas a relatively high level of activity of (137)Cs (around 30 Bq kg(-1)) was determined. On the other hand, in plant samples mostly used as feed (such as alfalfa and maize) the concentration of natural radio-nuclide activity and (137)Cs was relatively low, i.e. below the range of detection. The content of natural radio-nuclides in moss was within the standard range of values specific for Serbia. However, the activity level of (137)Cs in moss gathered from the wider area around Belgrade, was high, the highest measured level being in the Avala-Zuce area (158-221 Bq kg(-1)). Our results show that this radio-nuclide is still present in the living environment of Belgrade even 20 years after the Chernobyl disaster, and that moss is a good indicator of living environment (137)Cs contamination.
