​​​​​​Radon is a cancer causing, colorless, odorless, radioactive gas. It is formed by the decay of uranium in rock, soil and water.

When you breathe in the gas, particles can damage the cells in your lungs.

According to the Surgeon General, over 21,000 people die of lung cancer each year in the United States  due to radon exposure.
