Radon is an odourless and colorless gas that comes from uranium decaying in the ground. It is found in every building and everywhere outside, at all times.
"Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined."

Radon is The Second Leading Cause of Lung Cancer
Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Second only to smoking, it accounts for 20,0000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Roughly "85% of radon-induced lung cancer deaths are among smokers."
Any level above outdoor levels of radon, which are between .135 and .405 pCi/L, increases the risk of lung cancer.
We Reccomend Taking Action if Radon in Your Home is Higher than 2.0 pCi/L?
The EPA's recommended level of Radon at which action should be taken is 4.0 pCi/L. However radon levels below this level still pose a risk, and a home between 2.0 pCi/L and 3.9 pCi/L should still be fixed.
Radon Gas Levels in Florida
On average homes in Florida are below the 2 pCi/L level.
But keep in mind that anything above radon levels outside, increases the risk of lung cancer.
