No, I don't mean stylish, I don't mean beautiful, I mean hot as in radon hot!
At this moment, The New York Times' article "What's Lurking In Your Countertop" is the Number One most popular article that is being emailed!
I'm no scientist or geologist, but, I'm paying attention and passing it along for you too. Oh, if you have to register for The Times, it's worth it. They do not do anything with your email address, so I'm told. Definitely register.
What you may want to do is contact a certified technician who will test your countertop here, or for $20-$30 you can pick up a radon testing kit at hardware stores.
