Radon Gas and Lung Cancer 

Radon Gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, second only to smoking. Radon decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe. As they break down further, these particles release small bursts of energy. This energy damages lung tissue and can lead to lung cancer over the course of your lifetime.

According to the EPA, Radon Removal can eliminate up to 99 percent of radon from the home.
