Health Information

Radon
Over recent years an issue has been made about the health risks of Granite surfaces. Claims of such risks involve the release of radioactive gas called "radon" and surface radiation on the granite itself.

Reports reveal that such claims, while though mildly true, pose no health risk to granite users. Although Granite does contain trace amounts of radiation and does release small doses of radon, the amounts are miniscule when compared to many other everyday surfaces and substances.
