Aargau schools house dangerous radon gas

24th June 2010, Comments 0 comments

Authorities detect dangerous levels of radioactive gas radon in 200 school buildings in canton Aargau. Seeping naturally from the ground, radon infiltrates basements and can cause lung cancer. While the schools are sanitized, further tests need to be carried out elsewhere in Switzerland, according to the federal health office. Priority is given to schools as children are considered more sensitive to the effects of radon.
