Have You Been Tested?
I had no idea that radon gas was the second leading cause of lung cancer! I thought it would be asbestos, aerosol or some other pollutant that’s obviously present.
The Surgeon General and the EPA both recommend that every home be tested for radon gas. I just purchased a test kit for $15. It’s a small paper-sealed tray containing charcoal bits. You simply let it sit in your home for 2 days and then mail it to a lab (at no additional fee). I should get my results in a few weeks.
Apparently, it’s easy (if not cheap) for a contractor to correct high radon levels in your home. Test yours today!
