Event description

Description

Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non smokers, and the second leading cause in smokers. Because Radon is an odourless and colourless gas, many Albertans are not aware that it is accumulating in their homes. Once the gas enters your lungs, it causes DNA mutations that lead to cancer. 1 in 8 Albertan homes tested over 200 Bq/m3, currently Canada’s maximum acceptable radon-included cancer risk limit.

Having your home tested is the only way to determine the risk to you and your loved ones from radon gas.

Join Dr. Aaron Goodarzi in an informative discussion on radon and why it is so important you learn more about it.

Dr. Aaron Goodarzi is a globally recognized researcher in the field of DNA damage repair, Aaron Goodarzi PhD, has made breakthroughs in understanding how DNA damage can cause and predict cancer. He is also a public advocate for residential testing of radon gas and is currently leading a campaign to test tens of thousands of homes across Alberta for radon, a Class I carcinogen that is a leading cause of terminal lung cancer in non-smokers.

The session will be held at the University of Calgary Clara Christie Theatre. Click here for a map
