1) Radon and gamma values are specific to Scotland. Other values are assumed to be the same as the UK average as published in NRPB's 2005 Review.
2) May not sum to total due to rounding.
3) 'Other' includes fallout, disposals, occupational and consumer products (smoke alarms, luminous watches, etc.).
4) 1996-2008 figures are not strictly comparable with previous years, although still represent average concentrations in milk in Scotland.
