Radon: biological information

Radon has no biological role.

Levels in humans

The abundances of the elements in humans.

How much radon is in your body? Find out here.

You can use this form to calculate how much radon your body contains. Enter your weight in either kilograms or pounds and click the "Calculate" button. You must enter a number, not text! Elements for which there are no data will always give a value of zero for the weight, no matter what you put in the weight box.

Hazards and Risks

Hazards and risks associated with radon:

Radon emits α particles. The main hazard is from inhalation of the element and its radiodecay products which collect on dust in the air. This might be a hazard in, for instance, uranium mines. Recently, radon buildup in homes and cellars from the surrounding soil and rocks has become a safety issue and some areas around the world test homes for radon gas. Part of the problem is that it is the heaviest known gas. Radon is present in some spring waters. Chemically, radon gas is not a hazard.
