Toronto granite countertops are a beautiful, durable choice for your home.However, did you know that there are radiation risks in installing a granite countertop in your home. The granite quarried from mines includes some radioactive uranium in it. Varieties from Brazil and Namibia can be especially affected. 360 millirem of radiation from background exposure is considered a safe level for citizens. A “hot” Toronto granite countertop might add just a fraction of a millirem per hour. Some groups even think that dangerous levels of radiation in granite countertops is a ludicrous idea, equating the radiation level the same as background radiation from space or from the earth’s crust. However, experts agree that there is no safe level of radiation. All radiation does eventually contribute to damage of cells in the body and could accumulate to the onset of cancer. Just know the risks when choosing a granite countertop, there are other alternatives such as laminated countertops on the lower end, and marble on the pricey end.
