Studies of Workers of the Italian radioactive spas indicate the existence of radiation exposures similar
to those observed for uranium miners9. A report of toxicological characteristics of the spa water
samples taken from the region of Samothrace Island is presented here. Assessment and Significance of
the toxicologically water quality of springs water and its exposure to two spa workers diseased by
cancer. The water with radon possibly contributed to spa workers carcinogenesis.
