Radon 101

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when the uranium in soil and rock breaks down. It is invisible, odourless and tasteless. When radon is released from the ground into the outdoor air, it is diluted and is not a concern.

However, in enclosed spaces like homes, it can sometimes accumulate to high levels, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. Long term exposure to high levels of radon in indoor air results in an increased risk of developing lung cancer. The risk of cancer depends on the level of radon and how long a person is exposed to those levels (Information Courtesy Health Canada).

To order your Radon test kit from the Saskatchewan Lung Association, please call 1‑306‑343‑9511 or visit the Saskatchewan Lung Association website.
