Surgeon General Health Advisory

"Indoor radon gas is a national health problem.  Radon causes thousands of deaths each year.  Millions of homes have elevated radon levels.  Homes should be tested for radon.  When elevated levels are confirmed, the problem should be corrected."

Scientists are more certain about radon risks than risks from most other cancer-causing substances.
