m. guillory: We were expecting questions about this after the NY Times article cleverly misled customers into thinking that granite countertops are lethal. Here are a few facts for your consideration: National Safety Council says that "Trace amounts of uranium are sometimes incorporated into materials used in construction. These include, but are not limited to concrete, brick, granite, and drywall. Though these materials have the potential to produce radon, they are rarely the main cause of an elevated radon level in a building." Typical Contributions to Radeon Content of Indoor Air: 69.3% Soil around house; 18.5% Well Water; 9.2% Outdoor Air; 2.5% Building materials (including Granite); .5% Public Water Supplies. Using scare tactics to sway customers towards synthetic stone is what we're facing here. This is even more outrageous to us because we would never expect a publications such as New York Times to take part in this shady ordeal.
