And you know what? They're absolutely right. Granite naturally has some level of radiation. So when your crazy conspiracy-loving aunt starts going off about your granite countertop giving you cancer, don't hyperventilate.
David J.Brenner, director of Columbia University's Center for Radiological Research, who said, "The biggest source of radiation within the home in indeed. But it is not radon from countertops, it's radon from the ground." Even with some radiation being emitted from granite countertops, they just aren't large enough to do any harm.
