I was under the impression that use of radium has been stopped completely. I received a query regarding the safety of a product, made in China. The company is cashing on benefits perceived by the user.
Details about the radium ball is available at the following URL:
It appears that the ball contains radium containing mineral at specific activity of 490Bq/kg.
Can any one conversant with this product advise me on the "health physics" of it?
