What is Radon and how can it affect my health?

Radon is a class 1 carcinogen and is the number one leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. According to the EPA, radon causes 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer related deaths in the United States. It is estimated 1 out of 15 homes contain elevated radon levels. Anything above the EPA rated 4.0 pCi/L is recommended to be mitigated(having a system installed to remove). Being exposed to the suggested 4.0 pCi/L and being a smoker, carries 5x more risk of dying from radon-caused lung cancer than dying in a car accident. For a non-smoker it carries the exact same risk as dying in a car accident. All that risk without event leaving your own home!
