You can use this form to calculate how much americium your body contains. Enter your weight in either kilograms or pounds and click the "Calculate" button. You must enter a number, not text! Elements for which there are no data will always give a value of zero for the weight, no matter what you put in the weight box.

Hazards and Risks

Hazards and risks associated with americium:

Americium does not occur naturally in the biosphere and so normally never presents a risk. In practice, americium is only found in any quantity inside controlled environments within research laboratories and nuclear facilities. In very, very small quantities, its α-radiation does find practical use in small smoke detectors. All such instruments are clearly labelled as containing radioisotopes.
