Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. When it enters a building at high levels, it becomes a cancer
risk. The threat from Radon is when the atoms split to become a new element and radiation is released. When you breathe in
Radon gas and the split occurs while in the lungs, it will irradiate the lung tissue. The body has a more difficult time
repairing the damage as the levels increase. The average person's body has trouble keeping up with the damage at
levels above 4.0 pCi/l. This is when cancer has a risk of developing. All buildings should be tested according to the
Surgeon General and EPA. If buildings are found to have elevated levels, there are several options to bring these levels down
to safer levels. This is known as Mitigation.
