It's also looking possible that THC may reduce the likelihood of developing lung cancer, and reduce the growth of existing tumours, but it is early days yet, and studies are hard to get started for the simple reason the stuff is still illegal in many countries. But smoking in a radon atmosphere isn't a good idea, whatever it is. Just go to Matlock Bath caves and mines if you must do it as there's no radon there
Counts inside the mine are over 166 times higher than those on the surface... (there is also plenty of granite on Dartmoor, but not at buckfastleigh!)
Now you definitely woudn't want to smoke in Kingswood Mine, Devon - or probably even enter it.
Whilst uranium ores had been found in other Cornish mines occurrence was sporadic. South Terras was unique in Cornwall in that a lode of some 250 fathoms length (457.2m) was found with uranium derivatives being the principal ores (taken from the Journal of the Royal Institution of Cornwall Vol. 1, 1993).

I've theorised that the months/years spent digging at the high Radon bottom of Nettle Pot combined with his smoking is what caused Frank Brown's lung cancer.

That was the worst climb I've ever done, and I had to leave my mate at the bottom slowly suffocating whilst I tried to go as quickly as I could, which wasn't very quick, and I was gasping for the entire pitch. We measured it a fortnight or so later and I think it was 2.6% - manageable on an easy stroll in Water Icicle, but definitely not SRT. I don't know how FB managed digging down there - I know it varies, but it's always obviously high - which just reminded me of the original topic. And no comments on the alcohol report then?
And this just in - ohohoh. I look forward to comments tomorrow evening, but it's past my bedtime
The CO2 wouldn't have bothered Frank he had the essential spliff going. Mind you oxygen was needed to keep the joint going.
We have to avoid arguments based on: doing X is OK because look at those people they do something worse
This thread is going a long way towards confirming that there is nothing more boring in life than a "pro-weed" advocate.
This is the only objective way to settle this thread and I'd expect the BCA to jump on this one as a priority.
It just messes your head up in a different way.
