During the period September 1962 to February 1963, iodine-131 was measured in milk sampled in 14 Italian cities. At the end of the period the average intake was 9100 pc, corresponding to a thyroid dose of 0.31 rad; the maximum intake (at Bari) was 16,300 pc, corresponding to a thyroid dose of 0.56 rad.
