Radon levels above 4 present risk from radiation that is dangerous over time. The gas is invisible and odorless and heavier than air. It is found all over the world. The levels are highest close to the flooring and it is safe to stay there but has to be revealed to a buyer and there ways to reduce the levels that doesn't require a lot of money. The gas emits alpha radioactive atomic particles but not like X-rays or gamma rays from a nuclear explosion. Local governments should have information about radon.

Dr Manos again. In some countries less than 10 is acceptable. I hope this is helpful and the topic comes and goes in the public's conversations.
