Abstract

This project aimed to find a recommended diet for the dogs that are living in the Exclusion zone due to the Chernobyl accident. In the project we analyzed fecal and hair samples that were collected by Clean Future Funds, which were then transported from Chernobyl to the United States. The data acquired from these test were then reported in the report and multiple types of dog food brands were compared to determine which was the best diet for the dogs. The usage of Prussian blue dissolved in water was also discussed. With the recommended diet, which was designed to minimize the biological half-life of cesium, it is expected that the rate of excretion of radiocesium will accelerate.
