Radon is a natural, radioactive gas formed by the decay of uranium in the earth's soil. It is a tasteless, odorless, invisible carcinogenic gas.
The gas rises to the ground surface and into a building through porous soil, and cracks in a building foundation, and works its way into the air inside a building. Radon gas may also be emanated by some building materials such as concrete, marble, and tile if they contain low levels radium . Elevated radon levels have been found in upper floor apartments and condos in Florida. High Rise Condo Radon Analysis Report
Long term exposure to radon has been linked to an increased risk of lung cancer, this risk is second only to cigarette smoking, according to the U.S. Surgeon General, American Medical Association, U.
