WHAT IS RADON GAS?

Radon Action is here to tackle radon gas in affected areas across the UK, actively driving action through education, monitoring and prevention helping to protect people from its harmful affects. But what is radon? Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the decay of uranium found in small quantities in all soil and rocks. You can’t taste it, smell it and it has no colour. Ordinarily it’s not harmful, dispersing harmlessly into the air. But when it’s present in confined spaces, it can rise to extremely harmful levels and over time, cause lung cancer.

WHY WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION NOW

The Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland (RPII) has calculated that if an individual spent eight hours per day in a building with average radon levels of 200 Bq/m3, the radiation dose that person’s lungs would receive over one year would be the equivalent to if they’d undergone 112 chest x-rays. Action needs to be taken now.
