Radon is a naturally occurring gas that enters buildings from surrounding soil. It is colorless, odorless, tasteless and radioactive. Radon is known to cause cancer in humans and is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
Minnesota sits on an area with high levels of radon so the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Minnesota Department of Health recommend that every home be tested for radon.
