BEIR VI radon: The Rest of the Story.

The National Academy of Sciences (USA) conducted an extensive review on the health effects of radon (BEIR VI). This was a well written and researched report which had impact on regulations, laws and r...

The FIRST large-scale mapping of radon concentration in soil gas and water in Romania.

In the framework of the last Council Directive 2013/59 (Euratom, 2014) laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionizing radiation, the problem of...


The majority of the world's population relies on surface water or large public supply systems of groundwater, where radon is low and a guidance value for radon in drinking water is not necessary. Howe...

Automated anomalous behaviour detection in soil radon gas prior to earthquakes using computational intelligence techniques.

In this article, three computational intelligence (CI) models were developed to automatically detect anomalous behaviour in soil radon gas (Rn) time series data. Data were obtained at a fault line and...

Radon removal trap design and coefficient testing for the development of an effective radioxenon sampling, separation and measurement system.

To monitor low-level radioxenon isotopes activity concentrations in the bulk gases, a radioxenon sampling, separation and measurement system has been developed. The xenon enrichment factor of this sys...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Radon. A naturally radioactive element with atomic symbol Rn, atomic number 86, and atomic weight 222. It is a member of the noble gas family and released during the decay of radium and found in soil. There is a link between exposure to radon and lung cancer.

Short-lived radioactive decay products of radon that include 216-Po, 214-Pb, 214-Bi, and 214-Po. They have an effective half-life of about 30 minutes and are solids that can deposit on the bronchial airways during inhalation and exhalation. This results in exposure of the respiratory airways to alpha radiation and can lead to diseases of the respiratory system, including lung cancer. (From Casarett and Doull's Toxicology, 4th ed, p740)

A decrease in the incidence and frequency of SMOKING. Smoking reduction differs from SMOKING CESSATION in that the smoker continues to smoke albeit at a lesser frequency without quitting.

Pipes for smoking tobacco, cannabis, and other substances, in which smoke is drawn through water. Do not confuse with SMOKING PIPES.

Gadgets, utensils, apparatuses or instruments used for SMOKING.
