Abstract

The 55Fe body burdens for 60 residents of Rongelap Atoll are reported. The measured burdens are approximately 3 times higher than those of a similar number of residents from Tokai-mura, Japan. Since previous measurements in 1966 revealed substantial 55Fe body burdens in Japanese residents, the current Rongelapese 55Fe body burdens pose interesting questions.
