We read with interest the article by Axelsson et al. [1] about the potential risk of lung cancer due to inhalation of radioactive radon gas. Indeed, this has been the subject of many scientific papers around the world for years without clarification of whether there is risk or there is no risk when the radon concentration is low. The paper by Axelsson et al. [1] states that ‘‘residential exposure to radon is considered to be the second cause of lung cancer after smoking.’’ The authors cite the… Expand
