Radon in Your Home – Environmental Factor to Human Health?


Radon in Your Home - Environmental Factor to Human Health?

(Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: City of Ottawa – Public Health

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing

Objective:

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas released when uranium in soil and/or rock breaks down. Radon is invisible, odourless and tasteless. Radon does not tend to be a health issue outdoors, as atmospheric mixing dilutes the gas to low concentrations. However, in a confined space – like a basement – radon can accumulate to high levels, which can present a health risk.
