Radon what a joke!

The EPA estimates that 21,000 people die each year from lung cancer attributed by radon. In the US the level permitted by EPA is 0.4 pCi/L yet in the UK it is 80 pCi/L in homes or 160 pCi/L in the work place. (1 pCi/L = 37 Bq/m3 )

Yet according to the UK Heath and Safety Executive (HSE):

“The radioactive gas radon is a hazard in many homes and workplaces. Breathing in radon is the second largest cause of lung cancer in the UK resulting in up to 2000 fatal cancers per year. However radon hazards are simple and cheap to measure and relatively easy to address if levels are high. Under UK regulations all employers must review the potential radon hazard in their premises.”


So, if the UK has 2000 annual deaths from radon and our levels are 200 times less in the home and 400 times less in the work place, how is it that people in the US are dying over 10 times faster from radon than in the UK? They have a population of 61,792,000 and the US has a population of 310,597,991 so even if there is 5 times the population then shouldn’t it reason that we would have about 38 deaths/year from radon??? (7.5 deaths/year x 5)

Could it be that radon is a huge scam??? Could it be that the liberals have again pulled the wool over our eyes like global warming, margarine, cholesterol, mold, etc. Just take a look at the unfounded scares of 2010. ( In my lifetime there have been thousand of scares later to be proven false, yet many make a fortune in the interim.

They scare people into a frenzy by feeding the liberal media a fake or bias “report” or “study” and duping most of the country too lazy to check out the facts. Then they con the congress into passing laws to “protect the people” all under the guise of some group getting rich. If you ever want the truth to ANYTHING follow the money. You will be amazed when you find out who is profiting from the “report” or “study”.

Wake up America! They are wolves in sheep clothing stealing your hard earned money and taxing us to death. Vote these morons out of congress!!!
