Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon is chiefly found all over the U.S. and can get into any type of building ? homes, offices, and schools ? and build up to high levels. Hence, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.

Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
