Hazards and Risks

Hazards and risks associated with berkelium: berkelium does not occur naturally in the biosphere and so normally never presents a risk. Berkelium is studied in a few nuclear research laboratories where its high radioactivity require special handling techniques and precautions. Apparently, berkelium tends to accumulate in the skeletal system and this is highly dangerous because of its radioactivity.
