SALT LAKE CITY -- You can't see it or smell it, but a dangerous gas may be lurking in your home.

Health experts say radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, can accumulate in old and new homes, office buildings, high-rises, and schools. Doctors say it is the second most common cause of lung cancer.

The Environmental Protection Agency is urging all people to conduct tests in their homes.
