Radon is an unstable gas formed by the decay of naturally-occurring minerals, primarily radium and thorium. Risk of lung disease associated with indoor exposure to radon is comparable to, or greater than, that of tobacco smoke and asbestos. The combination of two or more of these exposures produce synergistic effects that dramatically increase likelihood of cancer. The U.S. EPA has provided one standard applicable to residential dwellings, it is a concentration 4 pCi/L (pico-Curies per liter) radon gas. No formal nationwide regulatory framework exists; regulation, where present, is typically limited to building construction standards or recommended guidelines, disclosure requirements, and provider licensure in certain states and localities.
