New study data indicates that awareness in our society about Radon is still widely unknown. Only 14% of respondents have heard that radon gas can occur in first floors of buildings. Scientists are calling for increased screening of lung cancer cases for radon, because the fact is that radon exposure in living and working spaces is the second most common cause of lung cancer. But it is easy to protect yourself from this naturally occurring radioactive gas!
How does indoor radon exposure occur?
The naturally occurring radioactive radon gas is contained in varying quantities in the soil and, in some cases, also in building materials. Radon gas enters buildings through leaks in floor slabs as well as walls. Through these radon entry points, the gas spreads indoors and becomes the second most common cause of lung cancer through daily inhalation.
What can you do to counteract radon exposure?
Radon Expert Martin Waltl (RadonTec CEO) likes to repeat himself on this point: "Only measuring helps!"
