i dont know if this is the rght spot, btu i didnt know how to contact you. I stupidly took apart a smoke alarm, broke through the metal cage, and got to the little metal disc thingy inside which holds the americum. I realise how stupid it was and quickly through it away. How easily could it become disladged and inhaled or consumed? I'm terrified i ahve alpha emmiting radiation inside me with a 500yr half life!
