The daily dietary intake of strontium and it's content in blood serum for Indian adult population were estimated experimentally by measuring the concentration of stable Sr in total cooked diet and blood serum samples using radiochemical neutron activation analysis technique (RNAA). This paper reports some preliminary results obtained in the estimation of gut absorption factor (f 1 ) values of Sr in Indian adult population using data on it's daily dietary intake and blood serum content. The estimated f 1 values of Sr in Indian adult population were compared with the reported ICRP values.
