"Hot spots"
The background radiation varies greatly in different places due to differences in the concentration of long-lived natural radioactive elements (uranium and thorium) found in soil and rocks. There are places on Earth in which the natural radiation background is significantly increased, but this does not create any problems for their inhabitants. Such regions are found, for example, in India, Brazil, Iran.
