What is Radon?
Radon is an invisible gas formed in the Earth’s crust. Radon is colorless and odorless.
It surrounds every one of us as part of the air we breathe.
What Radon Does to Our Health:
When radon decays, it releases radioactive particles that can be
harmful to our lungs. In fact, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the US and, according to recent research, contributes to skin cancer.
Newborns/children are more susceptible to radon exposure due to
their lung shape and size. Radon is also proven to be harmful to pets.
