    Key mineral protection approaches are as follows: 1) Calcium protects the bones from strontium, strontium, barium, and radium. 2) Potassium protects the muscles, kidneys, liver, and reproductive organs from cesium, cesium , potassium, and potassium 3) Iodine protects the thyroid and gonads from iodine   Cesium is a byproduct of nuclear fission. The second option is the creation of isotopes by bombarding certain elements with neutrons. In this process, the nuclei of the bombarded element are made unstable or radioactive as they capture neutrons. In this group come the isotopes of cob thulium , and iridium

    Over a dozen radioactive nuclides have a history of use as sealed sources in brachytherapy. The common contemporary sources are: cobalt, cesium, iridium, iodine and paladium Less common sources are: gold, ruthenium and californium The use of radium and radon was discontinued because of safety ://   with the protection problems faced at that time in the U.
