Are my lenses radioactive???

My parents bought this Yashica long before I was born. It was always lying (along with other legacy equipment) in our storage room. Had it in my hands on occasions few times in the past, as it's appearance always intrigued me.

It's a an "Electro 35" GT model with Yashinon-DX 45mm 1.7 lenses (serial: 00229538). A handful of sources list several Yashinon-DX's as 'radioactive', but almost all of them are 50mm. Having looked mine from several angles, it seems there's a slight tint of yellow - but not entirely sure.

Does anyone have any clue on that particular model/lens?

p.s. I know we are talking about a 'small' dosage here, but let's stick to the topic
