1 (over oceans) to 10 Bq/m 3 (1 Bq=27 pCi). The concentration of radon varies widely in different parts of the world. High concentrations of radon have been noted especially in areas where terrestrial gamma radiation is high. Radon and its daughters are usually present in a particle-bound form. Exposure to Carcinogens Indoors Few data are available on the concentration of particle-bound carcinogens such as metals, asbestiform fibres and PAHs in indoor air. , below 1,000 fibres/m 3 ), unless it was used as coating material [1].

2. Estimated geometric mean values of 11 toxic compounds in daytime (6:00 am - 6:00 pm) air samples for the population of Elizabeth and Bayonne, New Jersey, USA, between September and November 1981. Personal air estimates (black bars) based on 340 samples; outdoor air estimates (hatched bars) based on 88 samples. Reproduced with permission from ref. 5 Levels of pollutants differ by season and by the hour of day, depending on the source of emission. For most of the volatile organic chemicals measured in the TEAM study, the indoor concentrations exceeded the outdoor concentrations (about 2-fold), and when clear indoor sources of emission existed, the nonoccupational indoor concentrations were much (sometimes up to 100 times) higher [5].
