About Radon: Radon is a naturally occurring gas in the ground that can get into your home undetected. You can’t see, smell or taste radon, and long-term exposure to high levels increases your risk of developing lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, only second to tobacco. Radon is responsible for 16% of all lung cancer deaths. The only way to know if your home has radon is to test. Testing is easy and inexpensive and measures can be taken to reduce radon levels.
