Do houses put off a lot of radiation?



  1. 0 Votes

    Houses can be sources of radiation, for example from radon gas. This gas is released naturally as small amounts of uranium in soil and rocks decays slowly over time. Radon gas is the second leading cause of cancer, after cigarette smoking. It can build up in homes over time, and pose a health risk in areas considered to be “hot spots.”

    It depends on the building materials. Stone houses will have small amounts of radioactive materials distributed in the rocks (naturally occurring radioactive isotopes), while brick and cinderblock will have similar but smaller amounts from the soil they were made from.
