In some parts of the world air pollution is so high that everyone living in those areas inhales the equivalent of 40 cigarettes a day (without being a tobacco smoker).Originally posted by barfle:
So, yes, smoking is not the only cause of lung cancer.
The actual concentration of radon in a basement varies widely depending on the immediate geology under your house. In my area, it is often required that houses be tested for radon before sale. High levels require remediation (usually a strong fan and some 6 inch duct to the top of the roof) before a mortgage can go through. Some unscrupulous sellers have been known to leave a few basement windows and doors open on the days of the test to make sure that they don't incur remediation costs before sale.Originally posted by piqaboo:
