i have heard that some peopleswallowed the radioactive buttons inside of smoke detectors and have had no ill effects!! (but I wouldn't try it there may be a protective sheild of gold over the radioactive and toxic Am (americium) but alpha particles (helium atoms) still escape)
I have so many microbes i have lost count
