Radiation Survey

Radiation is all around us.

naturally-occurring radiation is present in the environment, and we are all exposed to it.

The 3 primary sources of radiation are:

  • Terrestrial radiation: from soil and soil gases.
  • Cosmic radiation: from the sun and outer space.
  • Internal radiation: due to natural-occurring radiation in the body.

We Reduce Dangerous Levels of Radiation

Granite Countertops

At issue lately is whether some granite counter tops emit dangerous levels of radon test radiation, especially radon gas, which is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.

Some granite countertop colors are more potentially troublesome than others: I am seeing higher results in the lighter colors that contain reds, rust, pinks, purples; however, to be sure you've got to test them all.

Experts agree that most granite countertops emit some radon and even other types of radiation. The question is whether they do so at levels that can impact cancer risk. See level reading at right--note how much higher than the outside air level of 38-42 counts per minute.

Hidden Dangers

In addition to granite countertops, there may be other hidden dangers of radiation indoors from certain construction materials and personnel items like dinnerware and home goods.A ceramic bowl was found in a kitchen cabinet that had radiation levels equal to that of a nuclear power plant worker's yearly exposure!
