Strontium is a metallic chemical element. It is a byproduct of nuclear power generation and nuclear explosions. Strontium is also used to give fireworks and flares their bright red color and in the production of glass used in televisions.

Strontium is a known carcinogen and is especially dangerous to children. Strontium binds readily to bone tissue and is linked with bone cancer and leukemia.

Exposure to stable or radioactive strontium occurs from ingesting contaminated food or drinking water or breathing contaminated air. In children, high levels of stable strontium can impair bone growth. High levels of radioactive strontium can cause anemia or cancer. Strontium has been found at 101 of the 1,585 National Priority List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
