Why Radon Matters

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It is a naturally occurring gas and can be found in almost every home (Health Canada, 2014).


Radon matters because it’s a carcinogen and is in our homes.


We take steps everyday to reduce our exposure to other carcinogens. For example, summertime probably means managing exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun (a known carcinogen). Radon is no different. We can take measures to manage our exposure.


The first step is understanding if the radon levels in your home present an issue. The only way to do that is to test.
