CBS News - Radon In Granite Countertops

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, next to cigarette smoking. Radon is naturally present in granite, but the various levels in different brands is wide ranging. Some of the popular granite countertops may emit radon at dangerous levels. A CBS news clip discusses ways to test countertops with an expert in radiation testing.

The EPA doesn't believe sufficient data exists to conclude that the types of granite commonly used in countertops are significantly increasing indoor radon levels. While radiation levels are not typically high, measurement of specific samples may reveal higher than expected levels on a case-by-case basis.

How long did the EPA look away at cigarette smoking while others presented research opposite to their thoughts that second-hand smoke posed no risks to people around smokers and indoor environments. If you already have granite countertops, you might want to do an at-home test kit to find out what your level of exposure is. View the video.
