What is radon?

Category: Health & Beauty


Radon is an organic radio-active gas that is a known carcinogen (lung cancer). Like many other deadly gases, it is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It is an inert gas that is created from the natural breakdown of uranium. Radon is typically found in certain rocks and soil. This can be dangerous if these rocks and soil are part of the foundation of your home.
