Canada | Call for Mandatory Action on Radon

In a commentary published in Environmental Health Review, experts join voices to call for mandatory action on radon in child care settings.

Radon is a radioactive soil gas that can build up to harmful levels in indoor spaces. It is a known carcinogen and the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada.

Despite its known risks and the availability of testing and remediation measures, most child care facilities in Canada are not tested to ensure radon levels are below the Canadian guideline.
