Home Radon Test

So Just How Dangerous is Radon Gas in Your Home.

I just thought people should know.

Radon is a Cancer Causing, Radioactive Gas

You've probably heard of the deadly radioactive gas called radon. You can't see radon. And you can't smell or taste radon. But radon gas could be a big problem in your home. The fact is radon kills about 21,000 Americans every year (based on EPA's 2003 Risk Assessment). That's more than drunk drivers, house fires or al Qaeda.

Home radon is definitely something you need to be concerned about. 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. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
