Thank you Robert, for forwarding the information about this patent. I have
followed it with much interest because I have conducted a research  on the
transfer of tritium from self-luminous dials to the human body almost 20
years ago, with quite interesting results - several thousands of Bq/l in
urine after only a few hours and days exposure from watches. Still the doses
were negligible.

These findings might not in any way apply to the claims of other RADSAFErs
and certainly not those of the new radiation protection specialist KOFF
(Finnish beer brand) on RADSAFE.   

Expect more comments on this question later.

Best regards,

The patent information on the "new" light source can be viewed at:

What is most interesting is the various blog postings about this material.
Of particular interest is the posting of the company's engineer, Mr. Stark,
who states unequivocally that the material contains no tritium or any other
radiactive material, in contradictiction to both the patent description and
any logic that we on RADSAFE (or at least I) can bring to this subject!

See, for example, Steve Stark's December 11th posts at:


where he emphatically denies the use of tritium or any radioactive material,
despite the patent description.

How strange is this?
