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 Western Canada.

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

The results of our 2013-2016 Southern Alberta Radon testing survey are now available! We are still collecting data on household indoor air radon concentrations, and are looking for participants from across Western Canada. 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. SIGN UP TO BECOME A CITIZEN SCIENTIST IN OUR 2017-2018 STUDY
