Here are some websites that may help you. I have chosen ones that are from government or academic sources because they are generally the most reliable.

http://www.epa.gov/radiation/radionuclides/tritium.htm
www.nih.gov (do keyword search for tritium to get a list of links)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez (again, use keyword searches like tritium and HIV or blood pressure to get dozens of scientific abstracts)

Also, check your school library website and see if they have links to research databases. Science Direct is a good one that will give you lots of detailed papers with just a simple keyword search.
