How to Lower your Risk of Lung Cancer During Radon Action Month

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 by Office


Prevent lung cancer caused by radon exposure

January is National Radon Action Month and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urges that all homeowners have their homes tested for radon.

You have likely heard of radon at one time or another, but you may have never thought of it as something you should be concerned about. The EPA has recognized radon exposure as a growing health threat. You can’t see, smell, or taste radon. As the second leading cause of lung cancer, this harmful gas is responsible for an estimated 21,000 deaths each year.

Radon gas forms naturally from the breakdown of uranium in soil and can enter your home through cracks in the foundation, gaps around pipes and even through your water supply. Radon is found everywhere in the US, including Pennsylvania. You can have a radon problem even if your neighbor doesn’t.

Testing is the only way to know if radon is a problem in your home. The best time to test for radon in your home is during the colder months when your windows and doors are shut. If test results show that your home has a high level of radon, the next step is to contact a radon professional to install a radon mitigation system to the level of radon in the air.

Radon exposure is preventable, but action must be taken.  There’s no better time than now to protect your health!
