The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated the week of October 20th - 26th (third full week of the month) as "National Radon Action Week" in the United States. Radon gas will kill and estimated 22,000 Americans this year, second only to smoking as the leading contributor to cancer of the lungs.

Radon is a radioactive noble gas with no color and no odor. It is one of the densest substances that remains a gas in normal conditions and its colorless odorless nature make it very difficult to detect. In addition to this, every isotope of Radon is radioactive. The most stable isotope has a half life of just under four days, decaying into equally radioactive substances, both of which are solids and easily stick to objects, such as dust. This compounds the risk of radiation poisoning, especially if these substances get in a person's lungs. Radon Awareness Week or National Radon Action Week is very important in bringing attention to this potentially very serious health threat.

As National Radon Action week the focus is changed from learning about the dangers of radon and on to the steps a family can take to take care of the problem. Although radon is a gas, there is a lot a family can do to limit the amount that enters their home. Although these services and these dangers are present all year, it is only really advertised to the general public during National Radon Action Week. Radon Awareness Week is when we are all reminded that Radon is a very real threat to our homes and families. The fact that this is week is called both Radon Awareness Week and National Radon Action Week reminds us that we need to actively protect ourselves. National Radon Action Week is our challenge to learn more about this very real danger and to be able to take steps that prevent it from entering our home.
