Radon is a colorless and odorless radioactive gas which comes from the soil. The U.S. Surgeon General has warned radon exposure is the #1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers (Press release). The gas can be in the air we breathe. Exposure to radon over a long period of time can lead to lung cancer and other long term effects. Any radon level poses some health risk. While it is not possible to reduce radon to zero, the best approach is to lower the radon level as much as possible. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the action level at 4 pCi/L (picocuries of radon per litre of air). At this level or higher, it is highly recommended to install a radon mitigation system to reduce the radon level." The only way to determine radon levels is radon testing by a professional like Dayton Radon Doctor LLC.
