Abstract
During the summer of 1962, levels of radioactivity in over 700 people at four villages above the Arctic Circle in Alaska were measured with a transportable whole-body counter. The averages for body burden of cesium-137 were much higher than the average for people in the rest of the United States. The people of the interior village of Anaktuvuk Pass had the highest average burden of cesium-137, which was 421 nanocuries; the maximum burden was 790 nanocuries.

Abstract
The concentration of radioactive fallout within various components of arctic ecosystems has been extensively studied during recent years as a consequence of the transmission in significant amounts of certain radionuclides to human populations. Major research and radiological health emphasis has focused on the two long-lived fallout components, strontium 90 (90Sr) and cesium 137 (137Cs). Long physical half-lives of 28 and 30 years, respectively, and other properties make them available over extended periods of time and provide the opportunity to study cycling properties in biologic systems. Although fallout deposition at 60 to 70° North latitude is but one-fourth to one-half that of the temperate regions, the lichen-caribou (reindeer)-man food chain consistently yields high concentrations of most fallout radionuclides in man.
