Radon measurment

The more radon atoms in each liter of air, the more bursts of energy are given off which leads to a higher chance of being harmed. The higher the number of pico Curies per liter of radon in your home, the worse for your family’s health.
 
The more radon atoms in each liter of air, the more bursts of energy are given off, and the more chance you have of being harmed by this energy, so the higher the number of pico Curies per liter of radon in your home, the worse this is for your family's health. The federal government says 4 pico Curies per liter is high enough that you should try and lower the level. We'll talk about that in a minute.
