Alpha radiation from inhaled short-lived daughters of radon readily irradiates human bronchial epithelium, and there is now good evidence of excess risk of lung.

      There has been a strong correlation between air quality and health, which is why it is crucial to obtain a complete environmental exposure history from a patient. This article focuses on the effects indoor air quality has on the respiratory system. Specifically, this article will address secondhand smoke, radon, carbon monoxide, nitrogen. This article explains procedures for measuring the indoor exposure to radon gas in air or water, and we describe the proper steps to remove radon and improve indoor air quality in homes. We also provide a MASTER INDEX to this topic, or you can try the page top or bottom SEARCH BOX as a quick way to find information you need.

House of Representatives, Ninety-ninth Congress, second session, Septem The WHO handbook on indoor radon is a key product of the WHO International Radon Project. This handbook book focuses on residential radon exposure from a public health point of view and provides detailed recommendations on reducing health risks from radon and sound policy options for preventing and mitigating radon exposure.

The handbook book focuses on residential radon exposure from a public health point of view and provides detailed recommendations on reducing health risks from radon and sound policy options for preventing and mitigating radon exposure.

The material in the handbook reflects the epidemiological evidence that indoor radon exposure is responsible for a substantial number of lung cancers in the. Subsequently, exposure to indoor air pollutants and health effects are considered, with an emphasis on those indoor air quality problems of greatest concern at present: passive exposure to tobacco smoke, nitrogen dioxide from gas-fueled cooking stoves, formaldehyde exposure, radon daughter exposure, and the diverse health problems encountered by workers in newer, sealed office builings.

This report by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is the most definitive accumulation of scientific data on indoor radon.

The report confirms that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. and that it is a serious public health problem. The study fully supports EPA estimates that radon causes ab lung cancer deaths per year.

The ISBN number for the book is. It contains protocols for measuring radon for the purpose of deciding on the need for remedial action, as presented in the A Citizen's Guide to Radon, and in the Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon.

Introduction to Indoor Air Quality: A Self-Paced Learning Module. The Indoor Air Quality Learning Module and its companion document, the Indoor Air Quality Reference Manual, provide an introduction to indoor air quality for environmental health professionals. Primary focus is on residential indoor air quality.

Overall, the risk estimates obtained in this study suggest that cumulative radon exposure in the residential environment is significantly associated with lung cancer risk. THE IOWA and MISSOURI RESIDENTIAL RADON STUDIES.

Phase II – Currently Underway. RW Field, Ph.D. a, DJ Steck, Ph.D. b, BJ Smith, Ph.D. a, CF Lynch, M.D. Ph.D. Radon exposure is hazardous to human health; according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.

after smoking. Radon can enter a home through gaps and bypasses in the foundation, and building characteristics can cause accumulation leading to unhealthy concentrations. The Inside Story A Guide To Indoor Air Quality The Inside Story: A Guide to Indoor Air Quality Information provided in this safety guide is based on current scientific and technical understanding of the issues presented and is reflective of the jurisdictional boundaries established by the statutes governing the co-authoring agencies.

Radon gas can be understood as a proxy measure for RDP. Active soil depressurization (ASD) is the predominant method for reducing indoor radon gas. Using this method, radon-rich air is evacuated from the soil directly beneath the home with the installation of a fan and suction system (EPA, ).

Scientists agree that radon causes lung cancer in humans. Recent research has focused on specifying the effect of residential radon on lung cancer risk. In these studies, scientists measure radon levels in the homes of people who have lung cancer and compare them to the levels of radon in the homes of people who have not developed lung cancer.

Here, for example, are two quotations from Sources of Information on Indoor Air Quality: Radon "There is no scientific doubt that Radon gas is a known human lung carcinogen. Prolonged exposure to high levels of Radon gas can cause lung cancer.

Millions of homes and buildings contain high levels of radon. The National Radon Action Plan: A Strategy for Saving Lives sets out strategies to drive the changes needed to reduce exposure to radon, a naturally occurring, invisible and odorless gas.
