What Is Radon Gas?
Many people are unaware of what Radon Gas actually is and the health risks that are involved with breathing in the radioactive gas.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and sightless gas. It is in the air we breathe and the water we use for drinking, bathing and cooking. At high concentration levels it is a serious health hazard.
Radon is naturally created from the decay of radioactive elements, such as uranium, which is found in different amounts in soil and rock throughout the world.
Radon is extremely prevalent in areas with large levels of granite concentrations. Radon Gas in the soil and rock is released into the air and underground water and surface water through the natural half-life decay process.
