Lung Cancer Risks Due to Radon

It is estimated that Radon induced lung cancer causes approximately 21,000 deaths per year.  Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. About 10 percent of all deaths that radon is responsible for are among people who have never smoked.

Radon Action Level

US EPA has set an action level of 4 pCi/L. At or above this level of radon, the EPA recommends you take corrective measures to reduce your exposure to radon gas. The World Health Organization is recommending that homeowners take action to remediate the radon level in their home if it exceeds 2.7 picocuries per liter (pCi/L).  Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk and in many cases can be reduced.The average indoor radon level is estimated to be about 1.3 pCi/L, and about 0.4 pCi/L of radon is normally found in the outside air. The U.S. Congress has set a long-term goal that indoor radon levels be no more than outdoor levels.

Michigan Radon Zone Map

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality states that One-in-Four Michigan homes has high levels of radon.  While your neighbor's test results might give an indication if there is a potential for elevated radon levels, results can vary significantly from home to home.  Do not rely on your neighbor's results to determine your risk.  Test your own home and be certain.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and comes from the natural breakdown (radioactive decay) of uranium. It is usually found in igneous rock and soil. Every state has areas of elevated radon levels, but some states have higher concentrations of uranium rich soils.  There are many factors that contribute to elevated indoor radon levels such as uranium concentrations in the soil, soil type, age of the home, foundation type and the condition of the slab or vapor barrier.  The only way to know for sure if you home is safe is to test.
