The specific activity (S.A.) of Potassium – 40 (40K) and its effective dose for three types of salts; Sodium salt, Liver and sea salts, and Potassium salt, were measured. The results of S.A. for these groups are 41.78, 285.5, and 427.84 Bq/kg respectively, whereas for effective dose are 0.315, 2.130 and 3.195 µSv/y respectively. These results strongly suggested that for persons with forty years old, the intake of Potassium salt must be lower than 2 g per day comparing with naturally intake 3.3 g for good health.
