Radon contributes to thousands of lung cancer related deaths each year. In fact, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today, surpassed only by smoking. Many who have died from radon-induced lung cancer never heard of radon or realized they had a radon problem in their home until they had already developed advanced stages of lung cancer.

Though you can't see or smell radon, you can find out if you have a radon problem in your home by performing a simple, inexpensive test. If you find that your home has a radon problem, there are cost-effective solutions. Explore our site to learn more about how to protect yourself and your family from this serious health threat.
