OK, so if one's house is on a slab, ie, no basement, does that mean no Radon?

The guy in Post 18 kinda hinted at it, but no real good answers followed.

Fun fact, you're probably going to get more dose at flight levels than breathing radon for 5 hours (or most areas of a nuke plant). Food for thought.
Ugh. Come on guys. Concentration is everything. Yeah I get your worried about concentration of Radon. Ok.

Food for thought. Our world has a level of background radiation that we've evolved to tolerate. Ever wonder why remediation companys dont offer you a giger-counter sweep of your "Radon Hot" basement? Or a radiation exposure-over-time meter, like those that nuc power plant workers, medical radiation technicians etc and such wear? Wouldnt that be a better indication of your exposure risk? No they dont offer that. Because for the majority of us (a small portion of Nevada not withstanding) only have background radiation, and therefore its as normal as sun exposure - which we all know is bad in high doses, but NOT because it simply exists.

Ok I get that I'm paddling up stream, and our mommy/snowflake generations are stuck on this. But theres also another term they seem to like now - Fake News.
