Radon Gas: Mitigation Strategies for High-Risk Areas

Radon gas, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, poses a significant health risk when it accumulates in high concentrations within buildings. While radon is present in varying levels across different regions, certain areas are particularly prone to elevated radon levels due to geological factors and building construction practices. The problem lies in effectively mitigating radon in these high-risk areas to ensure the safety and well-being of residents.

What factors contribute to elevated radon levels in certain geographical regions? Discuss geological formations, soil types, and building practices that may increase radon infiltration in homes and other structures.
