Radon and Cancer?

Monday, September 24th by Mary Smith

More to worry about?… one more thing making us sick? One of the biggest risk factors for lung cancer is colorless, odorless and may be lurking in your home. This unsuspecting (monster) predator is called Radon.

What is this monster a.k.a Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring gas found most often in areas with a large amount of granite. Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in buildings, especially in confined areas such as attics and basements. The soil under and around the house is by far the largest source of radon gas, but has also been found in well water, rock formation, building materials, public water supplies and outdoor air.

The United Nation's World Health Organization (WHO) says that radon is a worldwide health risk in homes. The greatest risk of radon exposure happens in buildings that are airtight, insufficiently ventilated, and has foundation leaks that allow air from the soil into basements and living spaces. It can build up in unventilated buildings and time and time again; it has been linked to lung cancer.
