January is Radon Action Month! Did you know that Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer? Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that is produced from the decay of naturally occurring uranium in the soil. There is no way to determine the levels in your home based on location, age of home, or foundation type. The only way to know is to test!
Radon Test Kits can be purchased online through radonmclean.org or in person at the Ecology Action Center or Mid Central Community Action. Test kits are $10 (plus $2 shipping) and require no additional laboratory fee.
