CounterTopia recognizes the accumulating reports about health concerns when exposed to radon emissions from granite countertops. Dr. Chyi, a professor of Geochemistry at Akron University, OH, conducted a four-month study on 13 of the most popular granites used for kitchen countertops in the United States. The study shows these 13 granites are safe to use. For more information about radon studies and Dr. Chyi’s reports, please click on the following links: Radon Studies and Dr. Chyi’s Report.

Furthermore there are two new studies published in the scientifically peer-reviewed Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology which shows that granites used in countertops poses NO radon or radiation threat to consumers.
