Science and Environmental Health. Case of Radon Radiation
Languages of publication
This paper offers a contribution to ecophilosophy from the perspective of the scien-tific research of the environment. The problem considered in the paper deals with a specific issue of environmental risk, namely, the problem of radon ionizing radiation and the highest permissible security norms of it. This problem, now rarely discussed in ecological communities, is one of more important for humankind’s health and safe existence. The awareness of harmful and beneficial biological effects of various envi-ronmental factors is a basic step towards ensuring the security of public health. The admissible norms of radon radiation are different in different countries. The article sug-gests possible causes of these differences and puts forward the thesis that today’s sci-ence alone is not a sufficient ground of resolving ecological problems.
