Mercy Medical Center – Radon, the Invisible Threat, What You Should Know

Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Real estate agents in Iowa must present prospective homebuyers a fact sheet on radon that homebuyers must receive any data if a home has been tested for radon.

Radon is an odorless, tasteless, colorless gas which is created when the element radium breaks down through radioactive decay. It kills more people by lung cancer than smoking. Think of that ….. radon kills 21,000 people every year.
