Plutónio

De um artigo de Gavin Atkins:
The truth about plutonium was famously demonstrated on American television when the distinguished physicist Dr Bernard Cohen carefully calculated the risk and offered to eat as much plutonium on camera as anti-nuclear activist Ralph Nader would eat pure caffeine. He declined the challenge which is just as well, or Nader would no longer be with us.

Já agora, o plutónio é um "produto natural" produzido "sem químicos":

In the case of this sample, however, the neutrons are in turn re-captured by the uranium, which then undergoes further decay and is transformed into plutonium. The result is that this mineral contains the highest known naturally occurring concentration of plutonium.
