WHAT IS RADON GAS?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced from uranium in rocks and soil. It can reach high levels under your home and enter through cracks in your foundation, walls, well water etc.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH RISKS OF RADON?
Radon gas can contaminate the air in your home. The gas is breathed
in, entering and releasing radiation into your lungs. The radiation damages the cells that line your lungs and can make you susceptible to acquiring lung cancer. Your exposure risk depends on the levels of radon and the time spent in your home.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates 1 out of 15 homes in the united States, approximately 7 million homes have high radon levels. Radon is thought to cause an average of 21,000 deaths a year.
Radon is thought to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in smokers and the leading cause for nonsmokers.
Radon gas can’t be seen or smelled, the only way to know if it’s in your home is to test for it.
