Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas resulting from the decay of uranium-238, which concentrates in enclosed spaces such as buildings and underground mines, particularly in early uranium mines where it sometimes became a significant hazard before the problem was understood and controlled by increased ventilation. Radon has decay products that are short-lived alpha emitters and deposit on surfaces in the respiratory tract during the passage of breathing air. At high radon levels, this can cause an increased risk of lung cancer, particularly for smokers. (Smoking itself has a very much greater lung cancer effect than radon.) People everywhere are typically exposed to around mSv/yr, and often up to 3 mSv/yr, due to radon (mainly from inhalation in their homes) without apparent ill-effect d . Where deemed necessary, radon levels in buildings and mines can be controlled by ventilation, and measures can be taken in new constructions to prevent radon from entering buildings.
I am 20 years old and I feel like I may have LLI but I’m not sure. I experience a lot of the same “symptoms” as you and some of the others who have commented on this article, but I feel like I might be experiencing some of the down sides and I just wanted to see if you experience the same things. I don’t have a genius level iq but it is higher than average. Like you, I don’t label things, I visualize all the parts involved even if I’ve never seen it. With cars I don’t just see a car I see the engine, radiator, fan belt, pistons, air conditioning, radio, odometer, speedometer and even things that I have no idea what they do or their names I can still visualize it. I recently started a new job and after being shown what to do I was able see a different, quicker, and more efficient way of doing it. As I was writing this I was driving down the interstate doing 90 weaving through traffic and singing along with the music on the radio. As you said there are different types of LLI and some of things I’m experiencing annoy and frustrate me greatly. Certain accents and pronunciations of words annoy me. Ignorant people talking about things that they have no clue about make me absolutely infurriated. Even people with speech impediments anger me. Brown nosers and people who ask a lot questions make me angry. I can hardly concentrate when the air conditioning unit outside one my classes turns on. I read one article where a guy was anti social to the point that many people thought he was suicidalbut I find myself not having that problem except when I’m at a party I can’t stay in one place for very long. I find myself going around the party loooking at all the small details and then trying to recall them in the morning (usually with great success). I’m having trouble writing this because I can’t convey in words everything that I want to share but if you just read this and let me know if you have experienced some these things and possibly give some advice on what to do that would be great. Knowing my parents, they won’t take me serious about something like this (they don’t think ADD and ADHD are real conditions, just poor parenting) especially since it’s relatively unheard of by doctors/ psychologists. Please just let me know what you think.
In 2007 guidelines, the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society included spinal manipulation as one of several treatment options for practitioners to consider when low-back pain does not improve with self-care. More recently, a 2010 Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) report noted that complementary health therapies, including spinal manipulation, offer additional options to conventional treatments, which often have limited benefit in managing back and neck pain. The AHRQ analysis also found that spinal manipulation was more effective than placebo and as effective as medication in reducing low-back pain intensity. However, the researchers noted inconsistent results when they compared spinal manipulation with massage or physical therapy to reduce low-back pain intensity or disability.
