About radon

Radon is a gas that happens naturally in the ground. You can’t see it, smell it, or taste it. This gas can move from the ground into the air. It is harmless in the outdoors, but if it gets into buildings, it can get trapped inside. Too much radon in a building can lead to lung cancer.

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Every year, more than 21,000 Americans die from lung cancer caused by radon. Not everyone who is around radon will get sick, but the more radon there is and the longer you are around it, the greater the risk of developing lung cancer. Mining studies show that those who were around low levels of radon for long periods of time were more likely to develop lung cancer.

It is important to test all homes, offices, schools, and preschools for radon to make sure everyone is safe.

  Test for radon!

A cancer survivor who had exposure to radon

Heidi Nafman-Onda was diagnosed at the age of 55 with lung cancer. She was a healthy, active, non-smoker with zero respiratory symptoms before she was diagnosed. Heidi and her husband Pierre tested their home for radon and found high levels, a little above 8.

“It’s surprising that we have requirements for safety devices like smoke detectors, seat belts and carbon monoxide detectors but people don’t regularly test for radon,” Heidi said. “In addition to screening for other environmental hazards in your home, every home should test for radon.”

Learn more about Heidi's cancer story at The White Ribbon Project.

Our intent in sharing Heidi's White Ribbon Project story is to underscore the importance of testing your home for radon. No discrimination is intended and no endorsement is implied.
