    Quick Facts. Radon is produced by the decay of uranium, which is naturally present in rock and soil. Radon gas is released into the air when uranium ore is mined and, to a lesser extent, during the production of uranium fuel for nuclear power plants. An increased risk of lung cancer has been demonstrated in miners exposed to radon, including uranium, tin, silver, and coal miners and those mining other substances in radon-contaminated mines. Most cancers from radon are produced by radon daughter decay products (polonium, 3 isotopes; bismuth, 1 isotope; and lead, 3 isotopes) adhering to the.
