Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that is produced by the natural decay of uranium and some other radionuclides that are present in soil. Radon gas breaks down into radioactive particles that can be trapped in people’s lungs when they breathe. As they break down further, these particles release small bursts of energy. Exposure to radon can damage lung tissue and may cause lung cancer in humans
