Radioactivity of natural potassium

Accidentally realized, that natural potassium is radiactive. it has ~0.0117% Potassium-40, which decays with emission of beta-particles & gamma radiation. Radiation levels through are safe even with 1kg of KOH.

I had to remove energy-compensating cover on the Geiger tubes to detect more of beta particles.
