Every year the EPA reports thousands of radon related deaths – thousands. The primary issue that radon causes is lounge cancer. But how does it do this?
Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from decomposing uranium in the earth. As uranium decomposes it becomes radium, the radon, then it becomes two types of polonium. Generally, it is those two types of polonium that actually affect your health. As you breath in the polonium it attaches itself to your lounge cells, causing mutation – and cancer.
That being said, mitigation is relatively easy, and the testing is even easier. So contact us today for your comprehensive radon test.
