Tritium is a relative of hydrogen (H-3), and is an element produced naturally every day.
As a result, it is contained in tap water, rainwater and also in our bodies.
It is a radioactive material that is broadly present in the natural environment.
The energy of radiation emitted by tritium is extremely weak and can be blocked by a single sheet of paper.
Tritium is being discharged into the seas from many nuclear facilities around the world,
and no adverse effects from tritium have been found in the areas surrounding these facilities.
