What’s the danger of radon? How do you get rid of radon? Scientific articles in popular language
A human has always been surrounded by radiation. Cosmic radiation, the radiation of dozens of radionuclides present in the soil, water and air, in the human body itself, constantly irradiate each of us. This radiation appeared before we learned how to build nuclear power plants, atomic weapons, or even take X-rays. And the contribution of this natural radiation to the accumulated dose of the average person is more than 70%. The modern development of science and medicine allows us to identify factors that are dangerous to our health. Some of them should be avoided, and some should be controlled and kept at an acceptable level. Natural radiation is among them. And radon makes the main contribution to it.
