210Po and 210Pb bioaccumulation and possible related dose assessment in parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota procera)

Dagmara Strumińska-Parulska , Grzegorz Olszewski , Jerzy Falandysz


Presented are results of a study on accumulation and distribution of 210Po and 210Pb in the fruitbodies of parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota procera) and risk to human consumer due to exposure from highly radiotoxic decay particles emitted by both radionuclides. Mushrooms were collected from 16 forested places in central and northern regions of Poland. Activity concentrations of 210Po and 210Pb were determined after radiochemical separation of nuclides and subsequent measurement using validated method and alpha spectrometer. Results showed on spatially heterogeneous distribution of the 210Po and 210Po activity concentrations in M. procera and two interpolation maps were prepared. Activity concentrations of nuclides in dried caps of M. procera were in the range from 3.38 ± 0.41 to16.70 ± 0.33 Bq∙210Po ∙kg−1 and from 5.11 ± 0.21 to13.42 ± 0.30 Bq∙210Pb ∙kg−1. Consumption of M. procera foraged in central and northern Poland should not contributesignificantly to the annual effective radiation doses from210Po and 210Pb due to amount of both nuclides accumulatedby fungus in caps.
