There are some people claiming that Chinese Drywall was made with phosphogypsum, a radioactive phosphorous substance. This can release Radon into your home over time. This could be a serious problem but has not been substantiated yet. According to Ron Bailey of the Florida Coalition For Chinese (Reactive) Drywall, they have not found any homes that were radioactive as of this date. More investigation needs to be done. If you feel that your home is radioactive, contact the Environmental Protection Agency immediately.

In conclusion, the ongoing investigation into Chinese Drywall continues with input from multiple organizations including the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
