Radon

The winter months are the perfect time to test for radon in your home. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that causes lung cancer. Radon levels vary between neighborhoods and even from home to home - only a radon test can determine the risk in your home. The Surgeon General warns that radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the nation (smoking is the number one cause).

Testing your home is an inexpensive and simple procedure.  Test kits can be found at many local retail stores.  For more information on radon and your home:
