ABSTRACT
A study of natural and anthropogenic radionuclides in milk powder consumed in Kuwait was performed. The milk powder samples originated from 12 different countries, and were designated for three distinct age groups, namely adults, children, and infants. The study targeted four long-lived gamma emitting radionucides, namely 40K, 137Cs, 226Ra, and 232Th. Annual effective doses were estimated for the three age groups from consumption of milk powder.
