What is Radon?

Radon is formed as part of the normal radioactive decay chain of uranium. Uranium has been around since the earth was formed and
its most common isotope has a very long half-life (4.5 billion years), which is the amount of time required for one-half of uranium to
break down. Uranium, radium, and thus radon, will continue to exist indefinitely at about the same levels as they do now.

Radon is responsible for the majority of the mean public exposure to ionizing radiations. It is often the single largest contributor to an
individual's background radiation dose, and is the most variable from location to location. Radon gas from natural sources can
accumulate in buildings, especially in confined areas such as attics, and basements.

Breathing high concentrations of radon can cause lung cancer. Thus, radon is considered a significant contaminant that affects indoor
air quality worldwide. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the second most frequent cause of
lung cancer, after cigarette smoking, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States.
