Radon gas is one of the most deadly and overlooked health risks today. Radon has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as Group 1, carcinogenic to humans, with a well established link to lung cancer. Other substances in this category include asbestos, benzene and formaldehyde.

In 2007 Health Canada reduced the Canadian radon action guideline fourfold from 800 Bq/m³ to 200 Bq/m³. In 2010 the World Health Organization reduced its recommended guideline tenfold to 100 Bq/m³. Health Canada's policy is that all Canadian homes should be tested for radon and mitigated if above the action guideline. The National Building Code now incorporates radon resistant guidelines for new construction, which most provinces are adopting. Few people are familiar with radon being the leading environmental cause of lung cancer worldwide, but this is changing. As public awareness increases, so will the need for radon measurement and mitigation solutions. Radon Environmental has positioned itself to service this need.
