When searching the web for "radiation exposure in Ikaria, Greece," a number of articles and papers appeared. It looks like CNN had a fairly recent story about the Ikaria radiation levels, and there are some papers about radon exposures to workers in the spas. Happy searching. It sounds like it might be a nice place to go and do a study.

This evening ABC TV aired a news report on how 
inhabitants of the Greek Island of Icaria live, and stay 
healthy, 20 years longer than people in the rest of 
Europe. The story attributed the longevity to diet and 
exercise. On the Internet I find that the radiation level 
on Icaria is elevated due to a lot of granite, but I haven't 
found what the dose level is. 
Does anyone know of measurements made on Icaria? 
Seems to me that's an important part of the story.
