A new initiative aims to raise awareness among the citizens of Saxony-Anhalt about the carcinogenic radioactive radon gas coming from the ground.
The Federal Office for Radiation Protection found that radon levels are elevated, especially in the south and west of Saxony-Anhalt. As a result, more than 15 communities have been declared radon precautionary areas since 2020.
"Radioactive radon cannot be seen or tasted, but the health risk for humans is all the more real," explained Environment Minister Armin Willingmann (SPD).
Soon, 900 radon measuring devices will be made available free of charge to test indoor air in living rooms or bedrooms over a 12-month period in participating households to obtain an accurate radon average. The radon meters operate silently and without electricity and contain a plastic that changes under the influence of radon. Participation is possible via online registration.
