Commentary No. 6 (1991) reviews the present state of knowledge and consolidates, in a succinct form, information and guidance on radon. Addressed are the status of epidemiology studies and estimated health risks. The document leaves unchanged the Council's 1984 recommendation on a remedial action level but recognizes the need for further review utilizing the results of studies currently underway. NCRP has long been concerned about the potential effects of radon exposure and previously published NCRP reports treating this subject made evident the view that radon exposure constitutes the most important potential public health hazard attributable to radiation in the United States today.
