Video: Radon and Lung Cancer
What Is Radon?
Radon is a deadly radioactive gas that causes lung cancer. It is odorless, colorless and invisible. Just because we cannot see or smell radon does not mean it is harmless. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), each year more than 20,000 Americans die from radon-induced lung cancer. To put that in perspective, radon kills more Americans than AIDS, drunk driving, home fires or drownings. Ironically, much is known about these other risks; yet the public knows surprisingly little about radon.
