Wetsgehoorsaamheid is baie laag op die prioriteitslys van sommige myne, veral die wat in sensitiewe gebied werk.  Mense en die omgewing ly daaronder omdat hul water meestal “gevat” word vir die bedrywighede, waaruit net ‘n paar mense wins maak.

Radon Alert - Carte Blanche

Millions of South Africans are exposed to radioactive radon gas in their homes and workplaces every day, as the naturally occurring gas escapes through cracks in the earth. The second leading cause of lung cancer in several countries, radon breaks down and when inhaled, decaying atoms emit alpha radiation that can damage the DNA. There are no safe levels of radon concentration. The United States Environmental Protection Agency emphasises any radon exposure has some risk of causing lung cancer. Carte Blanche investigates why South Africa has no regulations to protect against radon accumulation in the home and what you can do to test your home and prevent lung cancer.   Watch the video here.
