Radon Can Lead to Lung Cancer

Having fun in Jacksonville, Florida while learning more about radon. You may not think that’s something you need to know about. Not true!  You need to pay attention and take action. Radon is a radioactive gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is found in EVERY home regardless of type or age.

The great thing is that you can take action against Radon.  Step one is to test your home. It’s easy to do. For more information about where you can get a radon test kit contact your state radon program.  If your test results come back high, take action and fix your home. Radon impacts many individuals and families.
