Radon is an invisible, radioactive gas that comes from the ground, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
All homes should be tested for radon, since it is in all buildings. In 2012, Health Canada released the results of a nation-wide survey which estimates 12% of people in the Northern Interior of BC are living in homes with radon levels exceeding the actionable guidelines. According to a study led by the BC Lung Association’s RadonAware campaign, 29 percent of Prince George homes had radon levels above Health Canada’s action guideline. Notably, more than half of the homes in the “V2M” area code had radon levels above this threshold.
