The conference and its proceedings will lead to scientific information exchange and interaction and will greatly increase our knowledge on the subject of Natural Radiation and Radon Areas. These proceedings cover an overview of all areas in the world with increased levels of natural radioactivity, easurement and determination of exposure, the biological impact of exposure, and an overview of the latest scientific findings in the fields of Radiation Protection, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Cancer Epidemiology and Public Health.
