Podcast on Recognizing Radon

Radon is a colourless, odourless, tasteless gas released when uranium, found
naturally in rocks and soil, decays. It is also classified as a known
carcinogen and a leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. In Canada,
radon can be found in new and older homes, public buildings and underground
worksites. In this podcast, Dr. Cheryl Peters, Postdoctoral Fellow at Carleton
University and Occupational Exposures Lead Scientist at CAREX Canada discusses
radon, where it's found, the impact it can have on our health and how we can
limit our exposure to it.



The podcast runs 8:22 minutes.
