Naturally you will get radium in your water and air as the illegally dumped uranium breaks down, like near the Grade School in Newtown, Connecticut with the 30,000 pico-curies of radon in the drinking water, remember, 20 is high. What a coincidence, we happen to be missing a used rod from the Millstone Power Plant. And this is the town where the great A.G. Blumenthal has all of his illegal dumping buddies that he lets off scott free!! Want a copy of the illegally dismissed suit? And the kids, the Town gives them bottled water but they still send them to the poisoned school!!

A rare, brilliant white, luminescent, highly radioactive metallic element found in very small amounts in uranium ores, having 13 isotopes with mass numbers between 213 and 230, of which radium 226 with a half-life of 1,622 years is the most common. It is used in cancer radiotherapy, as a neutron source for some research purposes, and as a constituent of luminescent paints.
