Each year radon causes 20,000 lung cancer deaths and in Pennsylvania alone, there are between 860-3,800 lung cancer deaths per year due to residential radon exposure.
While you may not be able to taste, see or smell radon, this radioactive gas causes an extensive amount of damage to the body, especially in children. In fact, roughly 270,000 homes in PA have radon levels over 20 pick/L which is much more than the EPA action level of 4 pick/L.
