Forest in Rivne region, Ukraine

At the moment, one of the risks of internal irradiation comes from the consumption of mushrooms and berries. Sadly, forest mushrooms and berries are key ingredients in Polissia cuisine. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of the risks, especially young people. As result after the Chernobyl accident, people are highly concerned about their health and the health of their children. The local population’s awareness about health and nutrition in general is quite low.
