Radon Science and Policy Statements Around the World

We at CanSAR and Southern Illinois Radon Awareness Task Force are so grateful for the releases and milestones concerning radon this year, and we look forward to more action against radon in the new year. Saving lives and preventing radon-induced lung cancer is what it is all about.

Below is a copy of “Briefly Speaking” by Bill Angell..

The last 12 Months have been a big year in radon science and policy statements coming out of various organizations around the world.

Last December we began the countdown with reports from such eminent researchers as William Field, Ph.D. and Dr. Susan Conrath at the President’s Cancer Panel Presentations.
