What is Radon

What is Radon gas and why is it dangerous?

Radon is a naturally occurring gas

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon gas is inert, colorless and odorless. Radon is naturally in the atmosphere in trace amounts. Outdoors, radon disperses rapidly and, generally, is not a health issue.

Radon becomes trapped in the home

Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools and workplaces. Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after it enters buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Indoor radon can be controlled and managed with proven, cost-effective techniques.

Radon when inhaled can damage DNA over time

Breathing radon over time increases your risk of lung cancer. Radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer in non smokers in the United States. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year from radon-related lung cancer. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.
