Granite Counter Tops and Radon?

Hmm...more than a few times in the past year we have seen references to granite and radon emissions.

The bottom line seems to be that the boom in granite's popularity meant that sources of supply and types of granite became less uniform. Some granite, (some say about 10% of the market), might emit enough radon to matter.

The issue is sometimes controversial and varies from one home to the next. Bottom line if one is concerned would be to test for yourself. Below you will find some links to the issue.
