The EPA ranks indoor radon among the most serious environmental health problems facing its citizens today. After smoking, it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, causing an estimated fourteen thousand (14,000) lung cancer related deaths per year.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that migrates into buildings from the surrounding soil. In some cases, well water may be source of radon. Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe. As these particles break down, they release small bursts of energy. This can damage lung tissue and lead to lung cancer over the course of your lifetime. An individual's risk of getting lung cancer from radon depends mostly on three (3) factors: the level of radon, the duration of exposure, and their smoking habits, including second hand smoke.
EPA recommends that all schools nationwide be tested for radon. Some states have tested all their
public schools. High levels have been found in a number of schools across the country. Therefore, it is important that students, teachers, and parents be aware that a potential problem may exist in their school.
A nationwide survey of radon levels in schools estimates that nearly one (1) in five (5) has at least one (1) schoolroom with a short-term radon level above the action level of 4pCi/L (picocuries per liter) - the level at which EPA recommends that schools take action to reduce the level. EPA estimates that more than seventy thousand (70,000) schoolrooms in use today have high short-term radon levels.
You can't see, taste, or smell radon. In fact, the only way to discover if high levels of radon are present is through testing. Having schools tested for radon is something that should be done on an on-going basis. Because as real as the threat of radon is, the good news is that the problem can be solved.
