mushrooms in Bavaria, even decades after the Chernobyl disaster, are still burdened with radioactive cesium. The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BFS) on this pointed out on Monday in Salzgitter after the publication of the new mushroom report. The mushrooms are mainly contaminated with Caesium-137 isotopes, which mainly come from the reactor accident in Chernobyl in April 1986.

Caesium-137 can store itself in the bone tissue according to the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and damage the genetic material there. In the long term, this can lead to bone cancer and leukemia.

 New Adjustment Gravenberch: Bavaria starting eleven “My destination” Newcomer Ryan Gravenberch has confirmed his great demands on himself at FC Bayern. © Sven Hoppe/dpa/archive picture Bayern's newcomer Ryan Gravenberch is considered a great talent in world football. «My goal is to be part of the starting eleven as soon as possible. If I succeed, the jump to the national team is easier, »said the 20 -year -old midfielder, who came from Ajax Amsterdam and is one of the great talents in world football.

The BFS examines wild -growing mushrooms annually at eight locations in Bavaria for a load on the isotope. Accordingly, the Bavarian Forest, Mittenwald on the border with Austria and the Donaumoos southwest of Ingolstadt are particularly affected. According to the Federal Office, over 4000 Becquerel Caesium-137 per kilogram of mushrooms were measured. The limit for mushrooms in retail is 600 Becquerel.

"As a rule of thumb, the inclusion of 80,000 Becquerel Caesium-137 with food in adults leads to radiation exposure of around 1 millisievert," the report says. For comparison: The average radiation exposure from natural sources in Germany is 2.1 millisievert within one year.

The radiation exposure is comparatively low if wild -growing mushrooms are consumed in usual quantities. BfS President Inge Paulini nevertheless advises that mushrooms collected in Bavaria only consume in moderation "to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure". According to the Federal Office,

are particularly stressful, among other things, bread stop mushrooms, red -brown bread stop mushrooms, chestnuts and trumpet chants. Bleeding forest mushrooms, saffron giant umbrellas, brown-scaly giant mushrooms and star-scaly giant skirts are rather harmless. Breeding mushrooms such as mushrooms and oysters are hardly burdened.
