      Kate Moore's account of the sufferings and struggles of the Radium Girls — factory workers who were poisoned by the glowing radium paint they worked with — reads like a . Health is determined by several factors including genetic inheritance, personal behaviors, access to quality health care, and the general external environment (such as the quality of air, water, and housing conditions). In addition, a growing body of research has documented associations between social and cultural factors and health (Berkman and Kawachi, ; Marmot and Wilkinson, ).Cited by: 6.

Radium levels in the environment have greatly increased as a result of human activity. Humans release radium into the environment by burning coal and other fuels. Radium levels in drinking water may be high when it is extracted from deep wells that are located near radioactive waste disposal sites.

This publication outlines the behaviour of polonium in air, water and soil, and in the human body. The primary objective is to provide information that can be used in radiological assessments of accidental releases and routine discharges of polonium to the environment.

Radium — Environmental aspects. Radium and radon are important contributors to environmental radioactivity.

Radon occurs naturally in the environment as a result of decay of radioactive elements in the soil and it can accumulate in houses built on areas where such decay occurs. Radon is among the major causes of cancer; it is estimated to contribute to about 2% of all cancer related deaths in Europe.

Radium, like radon, is a radioactive. 2. JAWOROWSKI, Sources and the Global Cycle of Radium, in: The Environmental Behaviour of Radium, Vol. 1, Technical Reports Series No.IAEA, Vienna,p.

The book explores the underlying barriers and enablers of environmental behavior and outlines key theoretical advances from psychology to improve understanding.

It then uses theory-based research in the development of behavior change interventions to critically evaluate empirical evidence on the effectiveness of those interventions. It also considers the induction of a range of different forms of cancer as a result of internal exposure to radium and its daughter nuclides.

The book used data from radium dial painters, people who were exposed as a result of the use of radium-containing medical products, and other groups of people who have been exposed to radium.

To identify the mechanisms of the radionuclides accumulation in sediments, the GEP has investigated, through the environmental survey database, the water treatment efficiency and the behaviour of U and Ra from mines to the by: 2.

About this journal. Environment and Behavior (EAB) examines relationships between human behavior and the natural and built ch topics include environmental experiences (e.g., restorativeness, place attachment/identity, environmental perception/cognition); environmental outcomes (e.g., pro-environmental behaviors such as recycling; health-supportive environments;.

The high demand for radium is at the heart of Kate Moore's book, The Radium Girls. Radium is a naturally occurring element, most of which is found in uranium ore; it makes up approximately 1 part per trillion of the Earth's crust, making it our planet's 84th most common component.

One ton of uranium ore can contain as little as grams of.Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.
