"Radon" in context

Radon is a gas that is colourless, odorless, and naturally occurring in the environment. It is produced through the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water, and can be found in the air we breathe. Radon is one of the major sources of indoor air pollution, and is estimated to cause at least 21,000 deaths from lung cancer each year in the United States. Health officials recommend testing for radon in all homes, especially those built on or near areas of uranium deposits. Radon can enter homes through cracks in the foundation, openings around pipes, and through well water.
