How To Avoid Radon Poisoning
Most people are unfamiliar with Radon gas. Radon is a radioactive gas. It occurs when radium from decaying Radon soaks into the Earth. Radon gas is sometimes found in spring waters and hot springs as well.
Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in buildings, especially closed in spaces, like basements, and attics. Radon gases are especially dangerous and easily inhaled. This means, that unsuspecting people are unknowingly breathing in the toxic fumes from Radon gases, while 'safely' tucked away inside of what is supposed to be the safest place on Earth: their homes.
Unfortunately, many people are unaware of Radon symptoms in the first place and unknowingly subject their loved ones to the hazardous environment. Arming yourself with knowledge about Radon symptoms is a smart way of preventing the unthinkable. Simply taking time to learn about this inconspicuous gas, and getting to know the signs of Radon poisoning could save lives and long term exposure could be avoided, once Radon symptoms are recognized. Overlooking Radon symptoms could end up damaging the health of those unfortunate enough not to know about Radon symptoms that are associated with Radon poisoning, such as multiple bouts of respiratory infections (More about that later).
There is no way of telling if someone's home was built with materials contaminated with Radon gas, without a Radon detection kit. Although, learning how to identify Radon symptoms early on could prove to be life saving. Radon symptoms are broad across the board and sometimes get confused with other illnesses.
Long term exposure could lead to multiple bouts of infections. Again, Radon symptoms have a wide range of symptoms. This is why it is imperative that people familiarize themselves with Radon symptoms. Some people end up ignoring or overlooking Radon symptoms altogether, jeopardizing their health in the end, because they don't know what to look expect.
The E.P.A (Environmental Protection Agency) epidemiological evidence shows a connection between Lung cancer and high concentrations of Radon. Radon gas is responsible for 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year. Radon is a radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless and tasteless, so it is easily inhaled without detection. Because of this, it is virtually impossible to detect Radon on your own without the help of a Radon detection kit. This makes the sneaky gas a silent invader to your home: putting the health of you and your loved ones in danger, especially if you are unfamiliar with Radon symptoms and don't know what watch out for (this is why identifying the signs is extremely important). Recognizing Radon symptoms before you suspect your health is being compromised.
Radon symptoms are brought on by long term exposure to Radon gas, so paying attention to Radon symptoms early on is crucial. Radon symptoms appear similar to that of Lung Cancer. Radon Symptoms include:A persistent cough that doesn't get better, difficulty breathing, chest pains, wheezing, Radon symptoms also include coughing up blood, hoarseness, and repeat bouts of respiratory infections, such as Pneumonia or Bronchitis.

In many cases, excessive exposure to Radon can develop into Lung Cancer. Once Radon has been detected in your home, it is best to install a Radon Mitigation System. Radon mitigation simply means to lower the level so the effects are less severe. The process is simple enough: The radon gas that is permeating through the basement floor and hanging around the living space of the home needs an easier way to exit the house than the usual indoor/outdoor exchange. A Radon mitigation system does just that. You can combat Radon's effects by sealing cracks and crevices where the gas is entering and providing a way in which gas can escape, the indoor radon level will become lower. There are several types of mitigation systems, but Active Sub-slab systems and Passive sub-slab suction systems are the two most common. Radon mitigation is effective and could significantly lower levels of harmful Radon gas in your home. It's an easy system to operate and doesn't cost much to own. However, educating yourself about Radon poisoning and learning the symptoms is the first step to safeguarding your health.
