Radon is a Health Hazard
Radon is a health hazard that you can put a stop to. Radon is an unscented, radioactive gas that is produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It gets into the air we breathe and the greatest exposure is indoors at home, school, or office buildings.The EPA indicates that radon is responsible for 21,000 deaths each year - smokers are most at risk.
Testing for radon in your home is very important and kits can be bought at most hardware stores, or by contacting Alpha Energy Laboratories toll-free at (800) 324-5928 or 1-800-SOSRADON (1-800-767-7236).
