Radon is an odorless gas that results from the decay of uranium in the soil –it is estimated that more than half the ionizing radiation that most people are exposed to in their lifetime comes from exposure to radon. Radon is the leading cause of non-smoking related lung cancer (EPA, 2010). You can not see, taste or smell radon.
