WHAT IS RADON?

 

Radon is a tasteless, odourless and invisible radioactive gas, resulting from decaying uranium in the soil under buildings.

Radon gas can enter your home through any point where it is in contact with the ground.  As radon radioactively decays, alpha, beta and gamma particles can be released into the lungs, causing damage to the lung tissue and increasing a person’s chance of developing lung cancer.

 

No building is free of Radon but determining exposure levels through testing is the only way to know the level of risk. Health Canada guidelines suggest mitigation in cases of average test results greater than 200 Becquerels per cubic metre.

Radon is estimated to be linked to over 3200 lung cancer deaths per year in Canada. It is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and second leading cause of lung cancer in smokers. Smokers exposed to elevated concentrations of Radon have an increased chance of developing Lung cancer. This is staggering information and now that we know the effects, we have the opportunity to take action.
