You can't see radon, you can't smell it or taste it, but it may be a problem in your home.  Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. 

Asthma and Indoor Environments
Asthma afflicts about 15 million Americans, including five million children. Since 1980, the biggest growth in asthma cases has been in children under five. The disease is a leading cause of childhood hospitalizations and school absenteeism, accounting for 100,000 child hospital visits a year, at a cost of almost $2 billion, and causing 10 million school days missed each year. 

Molds are part of the natural environment. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. 

Traditional landscaping and current landscape maintenance practices often have harmful environmental impacts, including the clearance of natural habitats, extensive use of pollution-emitting mechanical equipment, consumption of water and fuel resources, and the frequent use of fertilizers and pesticides. The EPA promotes the adoption of more ecologically beneficial alternatives such as natural or native landscaping in which indigenous rather than imported plants are used. This approach can yield great benefits, including safer environments for our families, quieter neighborhoods, water conservation, reduced landscape maintenance costs, reduced waste generation and even lower heating and cooling bills.

Water is essential for life and plays a vital role in the proper functioning of the Earth's ecosystems. The pollution of water has a serious impact on all living creatures, and can negatively affect the use of water for drinking, household needs, recreation, fishing, transportation and commerce. EPA enforces federal clean water and safe drinking water laws, provides support for municipal wastewater treatment plants, and takes part in pollution prevention efforts aimed at protecting watersheds and sources of drinking water. The Agency carries out both regulatory and voluntary programs to fulfill its mission to protect the nation's waters.
