Health risks of radon in buildings

Read More

What is radon?

Radon is a gas produced from the decay of uranium, a naturally occurring element in the earth’s crust. Radon is radioactive, emitting harmful alpha radiation when it decays.

Radon is present in outdoor and indoor air, usually in small amounts. We breathe it in and out all the time. If a radon atom decays while inside our lungs, the alpha radiation released may damage lung cells. This has the potential to cause lung cancer. It is estimated that 1,100 people die prematurely every year from radon exposure, just in England and Wales.
