Cesium is a metal and the 55th element on the periodic table and has a boiling point of 944 K. Scientists in Japan have recently discovered traces of radioactive Cesium in rice crops growing near the Fukushima power plant after finding other radioactive substances in beef and milk. This has led to several recalls and could lead to health problems for those who consume the contaminated rice.
