Radon Gas: you cannot SEE, SMELL, or TASTE
Radon is a Cancer‑Causing, radioactive gas you cannot see, smell, or taste. But it still may be a problem in your home. When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General of the United States has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke your risks concerning radon are even higher.
It is estimated that there are about 21,000 annual radon-related lung cancer deaths.
You should test for Radon Gas
Testing is the only way to find out your home’s radon levels. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. If you find that you have high radon levels, there are ways to fix it. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.
