Radon in Granite Countertops: Don’t Worry.
- Granite countertops may contain trace amounts of radon, but not enough to be of any consequence. I’m not worried about granite countertops. Gee, imagine that. From everything I’ve read about this scare, I think it’s mostly a laughable smear compaign; the people saying granite countertops present a radon risk are largely the manufacturers of competing products. Being worried about granite is a little bit like being afraid of dirt. In the same article, another expert says you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than being at risk for cancer because of radon in granite. As for that New York Times article and the idea that some granite might heat up your Cheerios… I’m sorry, but that’s just absurd. Not the slightest bit.
