The report presents the results of an investigation designed to evaluate the short- and long-term behavior of tritium in beef animals and dairy cows with emphasis on the resultant hazard to humans consuming meat and dairy products. It is hoped that this information will be of use to those individuals who must assess hazards from accidental release of tritium, designers of nuclear waste processing facilities and those responsible for nuclear reactor site selection.
