There is no way to estimate a dose from the activities reported in this
paper. The uncertainties are large and by the time you back-calculate the
ingested activity the uncertainty is so large as to make any estimate
All that can be said is that the results of this study are consistent with
a lethal dose of Po210 being administered (tens of millicuries to result in
death within a month). That being said, just about any activity measured
this far out would be consistent with that assumption.

Can anybody calculate a dose (Since no attempt was done in the report) ? I
mean can we suggest an Acute Radiation Syndrome as a cause of death without
a dose estimation??
