WHY SHOULD YOU TEST FOR RADON?
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States – only behind smoking.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can be found anywhere. As uranium breaks down in the soil under your house, the resulting gas gets into the air you breathe. This gas is colorless, odorless and tasteless, so you have no way of knowing if you’re being exposed to unhealthy levels.
Watch out for these symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
- Persistent coughing
- Chest pain
- Loss of appetite
