Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless, colorless invisible radioactive gas that can emanate from soil and become a health hazard when it builds up to higher concentrations in our homes, schools, and offices. Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and the first leading cause of lung cancer in people who have never smoked.
