Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs when uranium in soil and rock breaks down. It is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas that can accumulate to unnaturally high and dangerous levels in our homes.
Every day, another Canadian is diagnosed with radon-induced lung cancer despite never having used tobacco. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, but it is entirely preventable. Knowing your home’s radon level is the first step in determining if you are at risk.
Evict Radon was founded by scientists at the University of Calgary in the fight against radon.
By testing your home with one of our Evict Radon test kits, you’re automatically enrolled in our research study. Each participant is helping researchers across Canada understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.
