Invisible threat: testing for radon at home

Date Published: 01/12/2009 [Source]

In 2007, approximately two thirds of homes tested in the Madison and Dane County area returned results with high levels of radon.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the US and the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers.

As part of National Radon Action Month, kits are available from the Department of Public Health for Madison and Dane County.
