Abstract

Several management methods, involving a complex decision-making process, are being used to investigate contaminated food for reducing health risk of the population. The management of a radio-logical event leading to contamination of the food chain needs decision-making processes, involving multiple criteria and stakeholders. The European Handbook on Management of Contaminated Food Production Systems stress specific rationalizes, such as administration of Prussian Blue feed additives, which reduces the transfer of radiocaesium to milk and meat. Dairy products are an important element of diet, especially for children, who constitute the most readiosensitive population. A higher education is also associated with more support for disposal of milk for contamination below legal norms.
