You may request a copy of Illinois radon documents by emailing Patrick. While radon is a lipid-soluble gas that can move freely in and out of the brain despite the blood-brain barrier, none of the transmuted heavy metal radon daughters are soluble in the lipids, meaning they remain trapped in the brain where they emit gamma radiation and alpha particles resulting in both radiation and chemical injury to the brain cells.
August 2, — In a study conducted at the University of North Dakota, researchers discovered that the presence of radioactive radon daughters in the brains of non-smoking persons with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease was 10 times greater than it was in the brains of persons with no previous evidence of neurological disorders.
When inhaled, radon gas accumulates in lipid tissue throughout the body with the highest concentration in the brain, bone marrow, and nervous system. Radon is a radioactive element that is part of the radioactive decay chain of naturally occurring uranium in soil.
This paper summarizes the epidemiological literature on domestic exposure to radon and risk for childhood leukemia. Fisclosure Real Property Disclosure Act – An Act relating to the disclosure of knowledge of radon in a home by the seller of residential real property Radon Mitigation System Checklist — This checklist is provided for use radob licensed home inspectors in Illinois as a simple tool to verify mitigation systems installations comply with the requirements of 32 Illinois Administrative Code Radon Industry Licensing Act – This is the legislation that required those providing radon testing and mitigation to be licensed with this Agency.
Once present, the most likely candidate for radiation injury appears to be the highly radiosensitive astrocytes rather than the more radioresistant neurons, which do not divide. Olshan, at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, cautions that these findings may just be a signal to devise long-term, progressively refined studies that may or may disclosue reveal definitive answers. The acts do not require that testing or remediation work pamphlte conducted.

Yet, studies assessing links between breathing radon gas and the risk for childhood cancer have yielded mixed results. Lykken at UND at – Acute lymphoblastic leukemia ALL is a cancer of infection-fighting white blood cells.
If you would rather that a trained professional perform your test, the radon program has the names of qualified, licensed Measurement Professionals in, or near, your area. Indicate the publication s you want and your postal address in the text of the message. By installing a passive system, homeowners can realize cost reduction and health benefits. In related commentary, Dr. Yet both agree that radon poses health risks and both recommend taking action to reduce those risks when the Radon level is 4.
Children with the highest radon exposures had a 63 percent greater risk of ALL relative to those with the least exposure.

Radon Testing Guidelines for Real Estate Transactions — This fact sheet and pamphlet summarize radon-testing protocols for individuals involved in a real estate transaction. The builder or a subcontractor installs passive systems during new construction. You may request a copy of Illinois radon documents by emailing Patrick. The following documents are in Iemw format. This pathognomonic distribution was inferred to reflect the increase of local chlorine availability to which the radon daughters bound selectively.
Previous study at UND determined that once radon is rapidly absorbed into the body from the lung, a fraction accumulates in the brain resulting in increased gamma ray emissions from bismuth one of the radioactive radon decay products and altered EEG signals.
Ole Raaschou-Nielsen of the Institute for Cancer Epidemiology in Copenhagen, and colleagues looked at the lifetime radon exposures of 2, children who had been diagnosed with cancer between andand rsdon, cancer-free pqmphlet.
Guidelines for Home Environment Radon Measurements – This fact sheet summarizes radon-testing protocols for individuals wanting to test their home environment for radon.
Science Teacher Powerpoint Presentation — This power point presentation has been compiled to aide you in teaching your students or audience about radon gas. These associations held up in further analyses that factored in other characteristics potentially associated with increased cancer risk, such as mother’s age, birth order, traffic density around the home, electromagnetic field exposures, and the building type of each home.
Against this backdrop, Dr. The epidemiological evidence to date suggests that an association between indoor exposure to radon and childhood leukemia might exist, but is weak. Passive Radon Reduction Systems – This brochure provides information about passive radon reduction systems and how they work.
Radon Mitigation System Checklist — This checklist is provided for use by licensed home inspectors in Illinois as a simple tool to verify mitigation systems installations comply with the requirements of 32 Illinois Administrative Code The results of 12 ecological studies show a consistent pattern of higher incidence and mortality rates for childhood leukemia pamphlte areas with higher average indoor radon concentrations.
