Summary
  • To develop appropriate public policy for indoor radon, decisionmakers need an accurate characterization of the risk of radon exposure and the ranges of exposures people actually receive. In response, the BEIR VI committee developed a mathematical model of lung cancer risk associated with radon, incorporating the latest information from epidemiology and scientific studies. This book provides a fresh assessment of exposure-dose relationships and discusses key issues - such as the weight of biological evidence and the associated extrapolations from radon-exposed miners to the larger population - in estimating the risk posed by indoor radon
  • This book considers the entire body of evidence on radon and lung cancer, integrating findings from epidemiological studies with evidence from animal experiments and other lines of laboratory investigation. The conclusions will be important for policymakers and environmental advocates, while the technical findings will be of interest to environmental scientists and engineers
