January is National Radon Action Month
January is National Radon Action Month, according to The EPA. Health agencies throughout the United States have joined forces to promote action against the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. The American Lung Association, Centers for Disease Control, and National Cancer Institute all agree that radon is a National health problem and encourage radon testing during the January call to action.
As Americans across the country look for ways to improve their health this New Year, EPA is highlighting radon testing and mitigation as a simple and affordable step to significantly reduce the risk for lung cancer.
Radon is a natural colorless, odorless radioactive gas, and is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, but testing for radon and reducing elevated levels when they are found can make your home healthier and safer.
