Radon and DNA’s Fate
Long term radon exposure can present a significant health risk with lung cancer being at the top of the list. Lung cells that are continuously pummeled with radon daughter cells, also known as alpha particles, will face potential risk. Those exposed lung cells will either be killed, damaged yet eventually repaired over time or seriously damaged with no potential for repair. The exposed lung cells which have suffered irreparable damage may reproduce abnormally resulting in mutation.
