What is radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas that is formed by the breakdown of uranium in the earth. When inhaled, the radioactive particles can damage the cells that line the lungs.

Long-term exposure to radon can lead to lung cancer. The U.S. EPA attributes more that 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year to radon, making it a serious health concern for all Americans.
