The EPA says: “Radon is a serious health hazard with a simple solution”.
According to the Surgeon General, Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. It is the second contributor to lung cancer among the general population, causing 21,000 lung cancer related deaths per year in the US.
According to the EPA, Radon is a deadly carcinogen that is easy to ignore and one that it is undetectable by the human senses. The EPA continues to warn us that this deadly gas is found in our homes where we feel the safest. They estimate that 1 out every 15 homes in the US have Radon levels above recommended levels.
