Our experience with a U-intoxicated patient and human data in the literature suggest the kidney U burden should not be allowed to exceed 0.26 micrograms g-1. The Annual Limit on Intake (ALI) for natural U was calculated from the chemical toxicity of U and was found to be lower than that reported previously.
