The problem of naturally occurring 222-radon contamination has received a great deal of public and scientific attention over the past several years, and has become a major public health issue worldwide. The purpose of the work reported in the document was to provide information about the behavior of ingested 222-radon in the digestive system and other organs of the human body. 133-Xenon, an element which behaves in the same manner as 222-radon in tissue and differs only in tissue solubility, was used in studies on human subjects. The tissue solubility differences were accounted for by using the tissue/blood partition coefficients of the two gases.
