Most Homes Have Some Radon Levels
Radon is a naturally occurring gas in the environment emitted during the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and rock, and sometimes water. Radon is odorless, tasteless and invisible to the human eye. Kanas City and the Midwest are known to be high radon zones.
The EPA has determined radon exposure to be a leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Most homes have some level of radon in and around them, but a test is needed to determine if you are at risk for high levels.
