Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas, emanating from the ground and accumulating in buildings. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, killing about 3,360 Canadians a year. While many countries, provinces and states have radon programs, there is little radon awareness and action in British Columbia. The British Columbia Lung Association has started a program on Healthy Indoor Environments with a focus on radon. We want to raise public awareness of the issue, empower people to understand the issue and take action and to build a provincial radon action plan. Together we can eliminate high radon inside BC homes and workplaces and save lives.
