5  Too much radon exposure can increase the risk of lung cancer  It is found that in epidemiological studies on thousands of uranium miners, that breathing in the radon can initiate cancer (alpha particles would damage the cells lining the airways) Koteles, Gyorgy J. “Radon Risk in Spas?” OMFI. OMFI, n.d. Web. 2 Feb
