Radioactive Rocks

Are kitchen tops radioactive?

The radio active content in rocks such as granite, marble & slate comes from tiny amounts of uranium & radon in the rock which break down over time releasing trace amounts of radon gas which will trigger a Geiger meter.

Radioactive content can vary based on the material, quantities and location from which it was sourced. Red, pink & purple granite is noted as being worthy of checking the air flow in exposed rooms.

it’s important to note radon originating from soil poses just as larger health risk, although granite slabs may increase background radiation levels when working on one.

materials like granite, marble & slate have dominated the kitchen industry in recent decades. For people concerned about indoor radiation you can get test kits or an environmental expert who can check for radiation levels and air flow in exposed rooms.
