Radon Facts:

 Radon is a radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It originates in the soil
 from the natural decay of uranium that exists in or below most soils and enters the home
 through cracks, around pipes or conduit openings, through sump pumps and drain tiles,
 between the floor and wall joints in a basement, and even from negative pressure drawing
 the gas into the home.

 The only way to know if your home has radon is to test for it.

 *In the United States, radon is the first leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and 
  the second leading cause of lung cancer overall.

 *The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that radon causes
 approximately 21,000 deaths per year nationally, most of these are preventable.

 *The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has set a recommended radon action level
 of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L)
. The EPA recommends that all Iowa homes be tested for
 radon and homes over 4 pCi/L be fixed.

 *Iowa has the highest percentage of homes above 4 pCi/L in the United States.

 *Radon test kits are available from some retail stores and many your local Public Health
  Department.
