Last year around 21,000 people died from lung cancer that was most likely caused from radon. That’s more deaths than those that were caused as a result of drunk driving.

Radon is a naturally occurring gas commonly found in soils, water and rock. Since it's colorless, odorless and tasteless, it's very difficult to detect without a proper radon test kit.

Radon can be found both in water and in the air. The gas moves easily through cracks in rocks and soils and could enter lower levels of a home (i.e. basements or earth-sheltered homes). It’s important to test your home every two years to easily fix this problem.

Since January is Radon Action Month, here’s an infographic about the dangers of radon in the home and what can be done about it.
