A Citizen's Guide to Radon: The Guide to Protecting Yourself and Your Family from Radon (EPA /K/, December ) This guidance offers strategies for testing your home for radon and discussions of what steps to take after you have tested, discussions of the risk of radon and radon . Radon was discovered in but it was not until the 's that an awareness of its potential as a hazard to humans developed. This resulted primarily from a recognition of the high levels of exposure for uranium miners. Measurement of high concentrations of radon in homes led environmental health agencies to focus on radon as a health hazard and has resulted in 5/5(1).

Radon-daughter exposure was estimated by different methods for and earlier and for and later. For and later, exposure records of WLM maintained by the mining companies were used. For –, the investigators calculated WLM by combining WL information with work histories. 38 Because of the variability of radon-daughter concentrations, the . THE principal radiation exposure of a uranium miner is to the lungs and results from inhaling short-lived Rn daughter products (Fig. 1) in the atmosphere1. The short-lived daughters Cited by: 2.

Unlike the gaseous radon itself, radon daughters are solids and stick to surfaces, such as airborne dust particles, which can cause lung cancer if inhaled. As I noted, the risk of lung cancer from exposure to radon (actually the radioactive decay products of radon, commonly called radon daughters or radon progeny) depends on the cumulative exposure over a lifetime. The risk factors have been estimated based on epidemiologic studies of underground miners and residential indoor exposures.

Radon Daughters is a comic and alarming epic about a city and a society torn by random violence and uncontrollable compulsions.

The half-life of Rn ( d) is long enough for much of the gas to work its way out into the atmosphere. Radon is also generated in the other two series. However, these isotopes of radon are of lesser radiological importance.

This book describes hazards from radon progeny and other alpha-emitters that humans may inhale or ingest from their environment. In their analysis, the authors summarize in one document clinical and epidemiological evidence, the results of animal studies, research on alpha-particle damage at the cellular level, metabolic pathways for internal alpha-emitters, dosimetry and.

Alpha-emitting radon daughters are adsorbed on dust particles which, when inhaled, are trapped in the lungs and may cause gene damage, mutations, and finally cancer [89]. After smoking, radon is considered to be the second cause of lung cancer.
