Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and Saskatchewan is a hot spot! Radon is a radioactive gas from the natural breakdown of uranium in the ground. You can’t see, taste or smell radon. It gets into homes and buildings undetected through cracks in the foundation or gaps around pipes. The only way to know how much radon is in your home or building is to test for it.
