[cdn-nucl-l] Re: Japan: "we don't see the need to regulate radon"
I just received a message from Montana Dept of Commerce. They had an
inquiry from Japan asking if the radonmine in Montana could "Bottle" radon
for export to them.... I refered them to their own resources...

| The author's claim that radon killed Madame Curie is inaccurate.
| She inhaled plenty of radon, but did not die of lung cancer. She carried
| out all kinds of research with X-rays and radioactivity (radium)
| http://www.aip.org/history/curie/ . She even trucked X-ray equipment to
| WWI battlefields and used it on wounded soldiers. She died in 1934 at 66
| years of age -- quite a long life in those days. |
