Unfortunately, Minnesota’s widespread low-grade uranium stores make it a hotbed for radon activity. As uranium breaks down, it forms radium, which decays into radon. Radon is a dangerous, radioactive gas that enters your home insidiously—through foundation cracks, crawlspaces, floor drains, sump pumps, pipes, and other structural openings. When levels build, you are at higher risk for lung cancer and health problems. In fact, it is believed that radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer.

Minnesota Department of Health has just launched an interactive website that will help with seeing a detailed map of radon activity by counties.
