Sometimes It Doesn’t Pay To Hide At Home
August 20, 2008
So much for the thought that if you just stayed at home, you’d avoid being exposed to dangerous chemicals.
Some new granite counters being installed in kitchens (and some bathrooms!) have high levels of radon, caused by decaying uranium (which, of course, is radioactive in its own right).
Hmm. Two things come to mind:
- Forget Iran and North Korea. Anybody who has a high-end kitchen can manufacture nuclear weapons without leaving his/her kitchen.
- We no longer need microwaves.
And now a study says arsenic in our tap water may have contributed to a higher prevalence of diabetes in our population.
Geesh. Honey, let’s eat out tonight?
