State of the Practice Worldwide: Risk assessment of radon exposure by ingestion and inhalation of groundwater within different age groups

According to numerous studies, radonu2010contaminated water caused lung cancer, colon cancer, and stomach cancer. Water was obtained from various groundwater sources in the Hafr Al Batin area, Saudi Arabia, and the radon concentration was determined using an electronic portable radon detector. From the initial radon concentration for the different age groups to assess the likelihood of radon exposure, the annual effective dose of radon exposure by ingestion and inhalation of water is determined. The calculated annual effective dose of radon exposure for the various age groups ranging from infant to adult was found to be in the range of 0. 05 to 16. 24 bcSv/y, with a mean value of 5. 89 u03b/y, which is within the safe limit set by the EC and WHO.

Short‐ versus long‐term tests of indoor radon for risk assessment by Monte‐Carlo method towards effective measurement strategy

Long-term measurements, according to the European radon group members, are now the most effective method for reducing the danger of indoor radon exposure. This research examines the uncertainty of collective risks obtained independently through short-u2010 and long-term measurements under the same conditions using the Monte Carlo technique, which takes into account the number of measurements as well as the spatial distribution of radon concentrations in representative samples of buildings. Simulation results have shown that contrary to the European radon group's error-prone lifestyle, the reliability of the risk of occupational exposure due to radon exposure does not really depend on the length of the indoor test at all.
