Cobalt 60 is a major source of gamma rays.Those are used in cancer treatment.Without it,cancer treatment would falter slightly.The amount of alloys would also differ.No joint replacements or dental replacements would be available.Alloys of cobalt are used in gas-turbines.We wouldn't have those either.Tablets and iPhones would no longer be available .Radioactive cobalt 60 is used to preserve food in some countries.That would also no longer be an option.It also forms part of vitamin B12.Adios,vitamin B12.Cobalt salt is also given to prevent mineral deficiency for some animals.Now where would that go?As you can see,Cobalt is very important to our life.We don't want that to dissapear anytime soon.
