Аннотация: Radon gas is a significant health threat linked to thousands of preventable deaths each year. Radon levels were measured in drinking water samples collected from Northern Haryana, India. The measurements were performed by RAD7 an electronic radon detector manufactured by Durridge Company Inc. All the recorded values of radon are compared with the permissible limits recommended for drinking water by various health and environmental protection agencies (UNSCEAR, USEPA, WHO, European Commission). The age-dependent annual effective doses for ingestion and inhalation were also evaluated in this research.

Radon is a radioactive inert gas. It is found in rocks, soils and water. Its most stable isotope is Radon-222, which is a decay product of Radium-226. Radon-222, which has a half-life of 3.8 days, emits an alpha particle as it decays to Polonium-218. If alpha emitter Radon-222 might be inhaled and deposited into the bronchiopulmonary tree,...

The health hazards of the radioactive gas radon on general public are well known. In order to understand the level and distribution of radon concentrations in soil-gas of Rajasthan, a radon survey was carried out at different locations using RAD7, an electronic radon detector. The measurement of radon concentration in soil-gas was carried out at...
