Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and Saskatchewan is a hot spot! Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural break down of uranium. All homes have some level of radon. The question is how much. You can’t see, taste, or smell radon. The only way to know how much radon is in your home is to test for it.
The air you breathe where you live, work or play is important to your health. The Lung Association is committed to helping you take steps to improve the air you breathe.
