      The fact that radon is present in indoor air has been known at least since s and research on its effects on human health started on early s. The danger of radon exposure in dwellings received more widespread public awareness after , as a result of a case of Stanley Watras, an employee at the Limerick nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania. The only known health risk associated with exposure to high levels of radon in indoor air is an increased lifetime risk of developing lung cancer. The risk from radon exposure is long term and depends on the level of radon, how long a person is exposed and their smoking habits. Air Cleaning and Radon Decay Product Mitigation, P.K. Hopke, C.S.

FACT: Although some scientists dispute the precise number of deaths due to radon, all major health organizations (like the Centers for Disease Control, the American Lung Association, and the American Medical Association) agree with estimates that radon causes thousands of preventable lung cancer deaths every year.

Prolonged exposure to any level of radon in indoor air is generally thought to be hazardous to human health and to give rise to lung cancer. On the other hand, low or moderate levels of radon in indoor air may, according to the radiation hormesis hypothesis, be beneficial to human health and even inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.

The finding.

A solid Rn (radon) source using a fibrous and porous SiC ceramic disk was developed. The emission rate of radon emanated from the disk depended on the content of Ra and the sintering temperature.

A Ra sulfate ( RaSO 4) solution was dropped on a fibrous SiC ceramic disk (33 mmϕ) of 1 mm in thickness, and sintered at °C. The radon Cited by: 1. F.T. Cross (Ed.), Indoor Radon and Lung Cancer: Reality or Myth.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after tobacco smoke and accounts for about 20 percent of all lung cancers. The relatively high values of indoor radon ( Bq M-3) and also the small radon exhalation rates ( mBq M-3 s-1 interval) are due to the cold season in which the measurements were made (namely a poor ventilation for dwellings and correspondingly smaller Radon in selected sites of Romania 1F (Bg /m3 1 i - lele 10 imBq,/mZS) 0 Cited by: 9.

Of these, only (% of all lung cancer deaths) can be attributed to radon acting alone, while the remaining (% of all lung cancer deaths) were caused by both radon and smoking in the sense that the lung cancer could have been avoided.

-- In his latest book, "Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity," John Stossel expands on his popular "Myth" segments on "20/20" and unearths truths often distorted -- or disregarded -.

EPA’s limit for indoor radon is 8 mSv/y, but mSv/y for tritium in drinking water. EPA limits Yucca Mountain exposure to. The Environmental Protection Agency's campaign to reduce indoor radon exposure is based primarily on data from uranium miners, who do indeed have a higher risk of lung cancer.

However, the potential role of other factors present in uranium mines, such as particulates and fumes from diesel engines, was never considered. Originating from rocks, soil, and dirt, radon can get trapped in houses or buildings and pollute indoor air.

Radon is a known carcinogen and listed as the second cause of lung cancer after smoking, according to the WHO report. It is also the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, as EPA estimates. Because radon data did not exist at the county level, Dr. Cohen obtained at least radon measurements in the 16 large counties with the lowest lung-cancer rates, and the 25 counties with the highest rates.

14 He also found identical results in the various random counties in which university physics professors at universities. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation that comes from the sun and man-made sources like tanning beds and welding torches.

Radiation is the emission (sending out) of energy from any source. There are many types of radiation, ranging from very high-energy (high-frequency) radiation – like x-rays and gamma rays – to.

It is like saying that smoking a half a pack of cigarettes every day will make you healthier and less prone to lung cancer than a non-smoker. Exposure to indoor radon.Later, in the s, Dr. Irving Selikoff documented the correlation between asbestos and lung cancer and mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the lungs) in shipyard workers.

Between these three diseases, asbestos is estimated to cause from 3, to 12, deaths in the US. each year, often with a lag time of thirty or more years between.Rich Barlow is a senior writer at BU Today and Bostonia s the only native of Trenton, N.J., who will volunteer his birthplace without police interrogation, he graduated from Dartmouth College, spent 20 years as a small-town newspaper reporter, and is a former Boston Globe religion columnist, book reviewer, and occasional op-ed contributor.
