Possibly: Presuming that it is adequately heated/cooled, and does not have mold growing in it, it should be no different than any home.

Probably: If the basement is heated, and ventilated and has no mold growing in it, is is probably ok to live there. In most places, a basement apartment has to meet certain standards for safety.
