Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that can cause serious health issues such as lung cancer.
One of the scary things about radon (other than you can't smell, taste, or see it) is that it's all around you... in schools, office buildings, and your home.
According to the American Lung Association, radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.
Radon gas occurs naturally, and as it decays, it releases radioactive byproducts that when inhaled can cause health problems.
