Becquerel - Radionuclide Testing Services
In Canada, the primary source of radioactivity in the environment is naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM). These levels may be technologically enhanced (TENORM) as a result of human activities such as the processing of raw materials (mines) or the application of fertilizer. As public concern for the environment grows, new or lowered limits are being legislated by governments around the world.
