Using a series of daily measurements of 125I in the drinking water of North Surrey, England, from November 1988 through May 1990, the accumulated activities in the thyroids of adults drinking such water were calculated on the assumption that the fraction of ingested iodine taken up by the thyroid was f=0.3 and the tap water consumption was C=600 L y-1.
These figures were compared with measured values of 125I activities in 42 thyroids taken at necropsy from residents in the North Surrey area who were dying during this same time period.
