dc.description.abstractRadon is a gas that is considered as an extremely harmful element to people’s health by the World Health Organization (WHO). Radon is a type of radioactive gaseous element that is present in almost all materials with which buildings are constructed, as well as in the areas in which they are raised. For this reason, one should take into consideration in what proportion is radon harmful and in what proportion it surrounds the human environment. In Spain, the CTE (Technical Building Code) does not yet envisage the maximum quantity of radon a building can incorporate and how to contain it [1]. Different scientific agencies from the fields of medicine and health consider the risk of lung cancer as the main repercussion of the presence of radon in the human environment [2]. This study focuses on identifying ways of research to be undertaken by different States to determine the doses of radon that humans can withstand. The study aims to measure various existing building typologies to determine the risk of existence of radon in them [3], [4]. Studies have shown that in the area Eastern Spain, even under the most unfavorable conditions, the cave houses, the levels do not reach the maximum set by the WHO.es_ES
