N2 - In this study, human health risk derived from radioactive pollution in drinking water of China was assessed based on gross alpha and beta.

Results show that concentrations of gross alpha and beta range from 4.98 × 10−4 Bq/L to 0.49 Bq/L with a mean value of 0.029 Bq/L and 5.00 × 10−3 Bq/L to 1.26 Bq/L with a mean value of 0.091 Bq/L, respectively.
