Why is radon education so important? Reducing exposure to radon is an important component in preventing lung cancer. Radon, a radioactive gas, is one of the most hazardous indoor pollutants. This naturally occurring gas is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, responsible for more than 21,000 annual deaths. According to the US EPA, radon concentrations above its action level are present in 1 of 15 buildings in the United States.

Webinar hosted by: The Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors and The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists. In partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Indoor Environments Division.
