Radon is a radioactive gas that is found in the earth's rock and soil. It is formed by the natural breakdown of radium, which is itself a decay product of uranium. As radon decays, it forms radioactive by-products called either progeny, decay products or daughters which, if inhaled, can damage lung tissue and cause lung cancer. Invisible and odorless, radon is a health hazard when it accumulates to high standards inside homes or other structures. And it is deadly. Indoor radon exposure is estimated to be the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer deaths each year in the US.
