Radon Gas causes lung cancer: Saskatchewan is a hot spot for Radon.
The province of Saskatchewan is a known hot spot for Radon. And almost 1 in 3 homes/businesses have shown elevated levels of Radon gas in Saskatchewan, which can cause lung cancer. The gas is colourless and odourless, so you never know if you have elevated levels unless you test for it.
Radon gas is formed naturally when uranium breaks down in rock and soil. As the uranium breaks down, particles can get lodged in your lungs as you breathe, greatly increasing the risk of cancer. Read the for Saskatchewan Lung Association Press Release (PDF, January 2021).
The only way to find out if radon gas is present in your home or business is by testing the air you breathe. Radon levels in a building change significantly over time and can rise or decrease from one hour or day to the next. For this reason, radon measurements taken over a longer period are more accurate. Health Canada recommends home and business owners conduct a long-term test for a minimum of three months during the fall or winter.
