Radon/Radiation - What is it?

   Let's start with the definition of radiation. Radiation is the process of giving off energy in the form of waves or particles. Depending on the radiation type (visible light, ultraviolet, x-rays), each has a different ability to penetrate. Radon/radiation is found around us everywhere we go. It is in the water we drink, the air we breath, soil, rocks, the sun, it's all around us. With that being said, with all the radon/radiation that is around us everyday and everywhere we go, the amount of it in granite is not dangerous at all and the risk is virtually non-existant.
