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 .
