Full Radiation Test

According to a recent investigative report by our friends at Environmental Working Group (EWG), more than 170 million Americans drink tap water contaminated by radiation. Long term exposure to low levels of radiation in drinking water is a serious health hazard, especially for pregnant women.

This package tests your water for Alpha Radiation and Beta Radiation from any source, including Radium, Radon, Uranium, and Strontium. We can also test for any of these directly, but we advise a general screen unless you already believe there's a specific problem.

The Full Radiation Test is available as a standalone test or as an add-on to our Essential and Advanced water testing packages.
