Sanitary-dosimetric monitoring of food products

Most of the monitoring measures implemented in the regions of greatest radioactive contamination were carried out for meat and milk products (36%) and water (45%). The efficiency of the control measures carried out during the first few months was estimated at 80-90%, and subsequently at 90-95%. (author). 1 tab.
