Saving Lives by Eliminating Avoidable Radon Exposure
Radon Gas "The Silent Killer"
It is the leading environmental cause of lung cancer in the United States and around the world.
Radon is a radioactive gas that is created by the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil and rocks in the earth below us. Lighter than the surrounding soil and rock it rises to the surface of the soil and disipates into the atmosphere. However, when it rises up beneath our homes, schools, and work places it often becomes trapped in the structure and builds to dangerously high levels.
Its a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas so the only way to know if you have elevated levels of radon is to test for it using specialized measurement devices.
