I just came acrosss a  piece of information.
A family in the French area of Vosges that ate large quantities of edible
mushrooms was found to have  ingested large quantities of radioactive
Cesium.
According to the article that radioactive cesium might have come from the
Chernobyl fallout, or being derived from the past nuclear explosions in
the atmosphere.
