  1. Applications
    Because of its unmatched combination of qualities, beryllium has become an increasingly important material for a wide range of commercial and governmental applications.
    Score: 1
  2. Environmental
    Everyone encounters beryllium. As a naturally occurring element, it's in rocks and soil and as a result, it commonly occurs in air, water and foods. Human activities such as the burning of coal and home heating oil or the processing of earth-based materials into products such as fertilizers can also release beryllium into the air and water. Exposures to beryllium in its natural state are not known to cause adverse health effects.
