The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated January as National
Radon Action Month. Radon is a
radioactive gas that is invisible, tasteless, and odorless. It occurs naturally
throughout the world as a result of the normal decay of traces of uranium existing
within the earth’s crust. Once produced, radon migrates to the earth’s surface
through rock, soil, and water. Radon further decomposes and releases low-dose
radiation once it moves into the atmosphere. The particles may attach to dust
and be inhaled if the gas migrates into a structure.
