About Radon

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas released from the decay of rock and soil. It seeps through the ground and diffuses into the air. In areas without adequate ventilation, such as basements, radon can accumulate and increase the risk of lung cancer. Basement and first floors typically have the highest radon levels because of their contact with the soil.

Radon is often the single largest contributor to an individual's background radiation dose and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, with an estimated 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year related to lung cancer.
