Fax: +91 1744 238050 E-mail: chauhanrpc@gmail.com Background: The most popular building materials are soil bricks and different types of stones. Radon is released into ambient air from soil and stones due to ubiquitous uranium and radium in them, thus increasing the airborne radon concentration. The radioactivity in soils is related to radioactivity in the rocks from… CONTINUE READING
