DNA damage caused by exposure to radon gas is a major health concern in the Prairies. We are raising awareness of cancers caused by inhaling household radon and are in the process of mapping radon levels in Alberta.

Become a citizen scientist and prevent cancer by testing your home for radon today

We are currently collecting data on household radon in the greater Calgary area and throughout Southern Alberta. Radon is a natural part of soil gas and can accumulate in houses. The problem is that radon is radioactive and will damage the DNA of the lungs to increase the risk of lung cancer, even in non-smokers.
