CRCPD (Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors) has issued a new guide for health care providers. The document is entitled “Reducing the Risk from Radon: Information and Interventions”. It is a very interesting document that describes in 11 pages basic facts about radon: what is radon?; radon health risk; scientific evidence of connection between radon and lung cancer; how to test radon?; how to reduce radon levels?; and other resources. NOTE: EPA’s radon action level of 4 pCi/L is equivalent to 148 Bq/m3.
