RADON

Radon is a gas that can be found in homes. It is completely colorless, tasteless, and odorless, making it an extremely big danger to people all over the world.

Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building — homes, offices, and schools — and can result in a high indoor radon level. You and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home where you spend most of your time. In Georgia, homes above the Piedmont are more likely to have high levels of radon.

  • Radon is a Class A carcinogen that can cause lung cancer.
  • You can’t see, smell, or taste radon.
  • Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe.
  • According to the EPA, radon is estimated to kill approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the U.S. and about 800 deaths per year in the state of Georgia.
