    Folks

    So initially I think I was looking for advice on Geiger counters but upon thinking about it a I’m looking for overall guidance on a potential inbound radium dial.


    I have 3 v small kids (all under 6, youngest 7 months) so my concern is more about understanding the long term exposure and what I can do to mitigate their exposure. Ie do I store in the basement where the radon extraction is, put in a well Ac/d room etc.

    This is new territory for me. Where do I even start with this? Am I being too paranoid?

    Thanks
    C.

    Yes, you're being too paranoid.
