The Industry Response

 
The New York Times hot topic story about the possibility of granite countertops containing radon and uranium sure made the industry jump. The official industry response to the story is here at the Marble Institute. Also, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) would like to remind everyone that they have "long recognized the carcinogenic effects of radon in the home" and recommend consumers planning to remodel a kitchen or bath consult with an NKBA-certified designer. NKBA-certified designers have been taught the proper methods for eliminating radon and other hazardous gases. We have a feeling there will be more back-and-forth over this story for some time. In the meantime, here are some other things you can do to protect yourself and your family.
