Human body contains radioactive elements that are Naturally occurring potassium-40, carbon-14, uranium, and thorium are present in every human body.

Our bodies are naturally radioactive, because we eat, drink, and breathe radioactive substances that are naturally present in the environment. These substances are absorbed by our bodies, into our tissues, organs, and bones, and are constantly replenished by ingestion and inhalation.
