Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           I am wondering why C14 (subscript) would be used in a disinfectant/virucide.  I always thought that it a radioactive substance used in carbon dating of very old materials by archeologists and nothing else.   If used in a day to day disinfectant/virucide, could it be considered potentially carcinogenic to humans?

           Any feedback given to this question will be appreciated.

           Thank you
