Radon is a colorless ordorless gas derived from the radioactive decay of the element radium that can find its way into homes through basements, crawl spaces and slab foundations. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It has been estimated that as many as 10 – 35 percent of homes in the Barry-Eaton Health District have elevated radon levels.
