For us, it’s just another month of EPA junk science.
Below are some resources on the radon scare:

- Cohen B, Test of the Linear-No Threshold Theory of Radiation Carcinogenesis for Inhaled Radon Decay Products, Health Physics (68:2;157-174), February 1995. (Note: Even recognizing the limits of ecologic studies, this study reports that “there is a strong tendency for lung cancer rates to decrease with increasing radon exposure, in sharp contrast to the increase expected from the [linear no-threshold] theory.” This paper was updated in 2000 with essentially the same results.
