Again, this is another example where a popular media decided to do their own "science" investigation, but doing it irresponsibly.
It seems that the New York Times reported a finding of an elevated levels of radon and radiation from granite countertops that are popularly found in many kitchens. How they think they can get away with making claims like that without being subjected to scientific scrutiny, I have no idea. As expected, the Health Physics Society has responded to the article.
When will these popular media ever learn that science isn't done in between the pages of their publications?
