Quantification of lung cancer risk after low radon exposure and low exposure rate: synthesis from epidemiological and experimental data (UMINERS + ANIMAL DATA), Final report (summary)

Project ID: FIGH-CT-1999-00013
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

Radon is a radioactive gas produced during the decay of uranium-238 that is present in the soil. It was classified as a human lung carcinogen in 1988, based on evidence from both animal studies and human studies of miners with high levels of radon exposure. Radon is present everywhere, therefore the quantification of the risk associated with exposure to it is a key public health issue.
