Abstract:

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is odorless, colorless, and chemically inert. It is present in naturally high levels in all 50 states and in certain areas around the globe. As a radioactive gas, radon has been associated with adverse health effects such as lung cancer in humans, who can encounter high levels of radon in their homes and at work. This document intends to aid the bioenvironmental engineers and medical providers of the Air Force in answering several common and uncommon questions that the public may have regarding this element.
