Radon is a typical radioactive decay product, but we are in a situation where everyone is at risk for radiation. Seoul YWCA had a lecture to know what the radiation is in our everyday life. In the lecture, Instructor Hye Jung Kim focused on ion products, cell phones, and medical radiation problems.
