Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that forms naturally from the radioactive decay of uranium in rocks, surficial materials, and soils over millions of years. After formation, radon can move through fractures and layering in rocks or through connected pores in surficial materials and soils and enter a home through the foundation. Exposure to radon in indoor air is estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to be the second leading cause of lung cancer, with smoking being the first.
