You can't see radon. And you can't smell it or taste it. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.
Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building - homes, offices, and schools and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home where you spend most of your time.
If your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high. Have your home tested for $75-$100 depending on location by Radon Ron KC.
Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing in all homes below the third floor for radon. The EPA also recommends testing in schools. Go to https://www.epa.gov/radon for more information.
Testing is inexpensive and easy - it should only take a few minutes of your time.
