Test Your Home for Radon Gas! Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in the United States among non-smokers and the second leading cause for smokers. You can't see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. The EPA estimates radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year, resulting in more deaths per a year than drunk driving, drowning, fires, or carbon monoxide poisoning.
For more information regarding radon or testing, call the Radon Information Center serving your area which can be found through your local health department or visit the Wisconsin Radon Information web site at www.lowradon.org.
