Radon: The Facts
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. causing approximately 21,000 lung cancer related deaths annually. For every 1,000 non-smokers exposed to radon levels at twice the EPA's recommended action level, about 15 will contract lung cancer. For smokers the odds of contracting lung cancer jumps to 120 victims per 1000 exposed.
EPA statistics document the fact that radon is a deadly carcinogen that is easy to ignore and is undetectable by the human senses. Another aspect of radon that makes it particularly dangerous is that it primarily attacks victims at the location where they feel most secure—their home. The EPA estimates that one in every 15 homes in the U.S. has radon levels at or above the action level. Property owners can resolve radon problems simply and economically. Basic awareness, detection and remediation of radon is key.
The EPA offers examples of where radon can enter a structure:
- Cracks in solid floors
- Construction joints
- Cracks in walls
- Gaps in suspended floors
- Gaps around service pipes
- Cavities inside walls
- Water supply
