Welcome to the Radon portion of CRCPD.org. Our website includes links to Radon
organizations and individuals trying to

What is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that emanates from the soil
worldwide. It can concentrate in the home, and if breathed for a
prolonged period of time, can cause lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon
General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer
in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer
