Radon in new home: a newly built home has tested very high for radon -- 16 in the basement and 8 on the first floor. EPA safe level is below 4. How dangerous is radon really, particularly for preschool age children, in terms of a percentage risk for developing cancer? How effective is radon remediation? What technical questions or specs should I insist on and double check? Are there any remediation methods that anyone recommends, that are particularly effective, or that would amount to overkill? Are there any remediation methods that don't work well? And good or bad side effects of radon remediation?

Where can I buy pounds of Indian mustard seed (Brassica juncea)? We need it for a phytoremediation project in New Orleans and all of the seed suppliers in our area (NC) don't carry it. Any ideas? [more inside]
