Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is radioactive and is the number 1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. Any home may have a radon problem. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.

Radon testing kits may be purchased at the health department for a small fee. The test kits are easy to use and provide all of the materials needed to collect the sample from your home.
