What is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally in soil. Radon enters our homes from the soil through cracks in the concrete floors, walls, floor drains and sump pits. As we breathe, the radon gas can release tiny bursts of energy that can damage living lung tissue and can lead to lung cancer over time. Testing is the only way to know if your family is at risk from radon. Testing is inexpensive and easy. Order a test kit at www.sosradon.org or by calling 1-800-SOS-RADON.
