What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced by uranium and radium decomposition in the soil as a result of any glacial activity in a particular region and/or other reasons. Radioactive minerals get deposited in the soil or upper crust and slowly Radon being a gas (odorless and invisible), seeps into buildings.
What are the Health Effects of Radon?
Radon is very harmful to humans when inhaled. Exposure to radon causes cellular damage that can eventually lead to lung cancer when radon strikes living tissues in the lungs. As a matter of fact, radon is the first leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer overall.
