Hazards and Risks

Hazards and risks associated with francium: francium does not occur to any significant extent in the biosphere and so normally never presents a risk. Francium is studied in a few nuclear research laboratories where its high radioactivity requires special handling techniques and precautions. One could speculate that its chemical hazards would be very similar to those of caesium.
