    This book is a substantive review of the current understanding of radon and its decay products in indoor air. More than 1, citations to the literature are included. The book is structured to examine the current state of knowledge of all aspects of the indoor radon problem. The WHO Handbook on Indoor Radon: A Public Health Perspective indicates that radon exposure is a major and growing public health threat in homes and recommends that countries adopt reference levels of the gas of Bq/m3 which is equivalent to pCi/L.

    radon is, and how to find out if there is a radon problem in your home. The guide also talks about what you can do if there are high radon levels in your Size: 50KB. The latest edition of the Exposure Factors Handbook was released in , but since October , EPA has begun to release chapter updates individually. This new process allows risk assessors to get the latest information as new data becomes available. To make it easier to find these chapter updates, the chapter date column has been added to Table 1.

    The Whole Building Handbook is a compendium of all the issues and strategies that architects need to understand to design and construct sustainable buildings for a sustainable society/5. So, the most important pathway for human exposure is permeation of radon gas into buildings, but also radon from water, outdoor air, and construction materials can contribute to the total exposure [89]. Hence, radon exposure depends strongly on regional variations. Radon decays to radon daughters, some of which emit alpha radiation.

The risks to human health posed by ionizing radiation are well known. Radon gas is by far the most important source of ionizing radiation among those that are of natural origin. Radon (Rn) is a noble gas formed from radium (Ra), which is a decay product of Uranium (U).

Uranium and radium occur naturally in soils and rocks. Other decay products of uranium include the isotopes thoron. when radon enters an enclosed space, such as a building, it can accumulate to high concentra-tions. The only known health risk associated with exposure to radon is an increased risk of developing lung cancer.

The level of risk depends on the concentration of radon and length of exposure. Because the source of most radon in public buildings is File Size: KB.
