I just wanted to start out this forum with the most common question when it comes to this radioactive gas: WHAT IS RADON?

I have recently discovered all the health complications surrounding radon and it is frightening. I am a mother of 3 and I want to make sure I keep them, as well as my husband safe from this.

I just learned what it was so I am trying to do my best to be sure I am avoiding it at all costs. My father died from lung cancer and he was not a smoker.

I actually learned about it just a few weeks ago. I am having a home built and the builder asked me if I considered radon in the area. And I was honestly dumb founded. I knew it was some form of gas but I had no idea it was deadly!

I am sorry for your loss. I am just thankful there is finally more information out there about this gas.

Thanks, and I am too. I don't want it to happen to me or anyone else ever again. It is not fun seeing someone suffer for 4 months.

Radon is known as a chemical element which indicates the RN and  atomic number 86.
It is one of the densest substances, it remains a gas  gas under normal condition.

This is scary to think chemicals like this are all around us and most people are not even aware radon exists.

I should have started here. Wow. I just learned everything I needed to know to take action. I am going to find a place that tests in my area and get it done asap. I don't want to get sick or have my wife or son getting sick from this.

Watching this video actually scared me more than I already was. I am going to email it to my family.

I watched this one and saw a few others on Youtube. I am going to get the best ones and start emailing them around. My brother has a small local blog that does well so I will tell him to post on it.

Honestly, I think it is bad for any "body". I think only certain insects aren't effected by it. Maybe some underground animals like moles and such.

I was thinking the same thing. Some bugs and such can't be too bothered by it. Anything above ground though, must be effected.
