What is Radon?

Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in a home can pose a danger to the occupents health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America and claims more than 20,000 lives annually. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe.
