Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas.
You can't see radon. And you can't smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home. Radon is estimated to cause thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
You can fix a radon problem.
Radon reduction systems WORK. And they are not too costly. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.
