In this study, Pb-210 and Po-210 activity concentrations in tobacco samples produced in 12 different regions of Turkey have been investigated and the estimation of the annual committed effective doses to a smoker have been performed, based on a proposed scenario. Po-210 activity concentrations were determined between 10.5 +/- 1.0 Bq kg(-1) and 31.1 +/- 1.7 Bq kg(-1), whilst Pb-210 activity concentrations were determined between 12.6 +/- 1.1 and 31.3 +/- 2.2 Bq kg(-1). In the proposed scenario, the mean annual committed effective doses originating from Pb-210 and Po-210 were 25 +/- 1 mu Sv a(-1) and 69 +/- 2 mu Sv a(-1), respectively.
