  • Produced from decay of uranium and radium—uranium is  prevalent in the earth’s crust, as well as, soil, water,  and rock
  • Inhalation is the main route of radon into the body
  • Measured in picocuries, which  tell how many radioactive atoms in  a particular collection of atoms are giving off radiation— in other words—how much radon is in your home’s air
  • Radon can be mitigated
