January is National Radon Action Month

The Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency- Radon Program focuses on informing Navajo Nation residents about the range of indoor radon levels and their potential health effects. Radon is a naturally occurring, tasteless, colorless, and odorless gas causing it to be undetectable by our senses. Radon comes from the radioactive decay of uranium. There are no immediate symptoms from exposure to radon but being exposed to high concentrations for a long period of time can be harmful to your respiratory system. Radon is the leading cause of Lung Cancer among non-smokers and the 2nd leading cause in smokers. Inhalation is the primary source of radiation to the body from radon exposure. We encourage and teach individuals to test their homes by showing them how to use our short-term test kits that we provide to the public for free. The Navajo Radon Program is currently the only relied upon Navajo Nation resource for Radon education, testing, measurement, and mitigation. Outreach has been a pertinent and main focus goal for the success of our program. Therefore, we do our best to reach out to organizations with similar interests in helping us attain a common goal.
