Radon exposure and lung cancer: analysis of risk for residents of Rivne City (Ukraine)
The analysis of risk from radon exposure on lung cancer among mining populations of world mines and residents of the city of Rivne was conducted. The calculation of additional relative risk for the residents of the city of Rivne by the method of epidemiological ecological studies performed on radiometric equipment “AlfaRad+” and calculated according to the BEIR VI risk model in two variants: “exposure-age-duration” (EAD) and “exposure-age-concentration” (EAC) was conducted. The values of the «risk coefficients» of the dependencies of the relative risk on radon exposure we obtained for residents of Rivne are lower than the ones obtained for miners (according to literature) were 0.31 (EAD) and 0.49 (EAC) per 100 Working Level Month (WLM), while the volumetric activity (VA) of radon in domestic conditions were 200 Bq/m3 and 1420 Bq/m3.
