Radon is an invisible, colorless, and odorless yet very dangerous gas that is produced naturally during the breakdown of uranium in water bodies, rocks, and in the soil. Radon has the ability to stack itself in water bodies, rocks, and soils, thus accumulating and making its way into homes.
It is a very deadly radioactive gas that causes cancer. The gas known as radon is the leading cause of cancer among non-smokers in America and the second leading cause of lung cancer overall.
