Abstract

Because most of the diseases to which radon therapy is applied are related with activated oxygen, in this study, the effects of the radioactivity of radon and the thermal effects were compared under condition with the same chemical effects using the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is an oxidation inhibitor, and lipid peroxide and low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, which are closely involved in arteriosclerosis, as the parameters. The results were as follows, the SOD activity was significantly increased, and the lipid peroxide and LDL-cholesterol levels were significantly decreased on days 6 and 7. The results were about twofold larger in the radon group than in the thermo group. This suggests that the antioxidation function was more enhanced by radon therapy than by thermo therapy, and it was suggested that radon therapy may prevent the causes of lifestyle-related diseases such as arteriosclerosis. These findings are important in understanding the mechanism of diseases to which radon therapy can be performed, and most of which are called activated oxygen-related diseases.
