Facts About 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.
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. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home where you spend most of your time. Building a tight home results in greater energy efficiency. But the tighter the home, the more important it is to properly ventilate and accommodate for the possibility of high levels of radon. In Georgia, homes above the Piedmont are more likely to have high levels of radon.
