Radon is an odorless, colorless radioactive gas and is a significant health threat throughout Connecticut. Radon can be found in the air in homes, schools and office buildings or in well water and prolonged exposure has proved to be the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, causing more than 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year.
