Narrator: As a result, at the Berkeley Lab, Kelly says they put into place very conservative controls and treat materials as if they're toxic...
Kelly: Even if we don't know if they're toxic, with the intent protecting people in the environment. Until we know for sure whether or not these materials are going to be hazardous.
